Uniuersity of Maryland 



Merriam-Webster's online dictionary defines pride as: 
pride: [noun] the quality or state of being proud: as 

- inordinate self-esteem 

- a reasonable or justifiable self-respect 

- delight or elation arising from some act, possession, or relationship 

As Uniuersity of Maryland students, uje haue four years to deuelop that self-esteem and self-respect, to 
grow our confidence to a leuel that ujill help us succeed in the real ujorld. We do this in a uariety of luays. We 
choose to glue ourselues credit where credit is due or discipline ourselues for choices gone wrong. As a gouern- 
ment major, I strongly belieue that life is about choices. A choice at the lowest leuel can haue the biggest outcome 
in life. The choices we make as Uniuersity of Maryland students euery day build who we are as indiuiduals, as 
intellectuals, and as a community. Euery day, as Terps, we striue to succeed. On the court, at work, on a date, 
or in the classroom, our goal is to succeed. In high school, this meant scoring as close as possible to that perfect 
score on the SAT, taking AP classes and impressing our professors for those stellar recommendations. As uniuersity 
students, some of these expectations remain similar but our experiences matter more. As adults, euery choice we 
make here will alter the course of our future. These choices are what help to build our self-esteem and self-respect 
and giue us pride in what we do. These are the things that will help us to succeed as working adults, because that 
chemistry degree won't get you anywhere without the confidence to nail that job interuiew. As May 19th ap- 
proaches, remember your pride in your alma mater and know that the skills you deueioped here will help you to 
follow the words of Henry Dauid Thoreau: 

"Go confidently in tlie direction of your dreams. Liue the life you'ue imagined."

This year, U.S. News and World Report ranked the Uniuersity of Maryland as a top 20 public uniuersity 
for the 11th consecutiue year, with recognition for outstanding undergraduate programs, including its many 
liuing-learning communities. 

The Uniuersity was ranked 19th among public uniuersities and 98th out of all national uniuersities. The 
suruey also named 29 of the uniuersities' undergraduate and graduate programs in the top 10; 46 in the top 19; 
61 in the top 20; and 72 in the top 29. 

Uniuersity of Maryland holds 10 colleges, prouiding 90 majors for almost 27,000 undergraduate students. 
Of those 10 colleges, the A. James Clark School of Engineering was ranked 23rd nationally for undergraduate 
programs, and the Robert H. Smith School of Business was ranked 21st. 

The start of the fall 2012 semester marked the start of the plus/minus grading system at the uniuersity. 
The new system forces students to pay more attention to the difference between an A and and A-, which could 
mean a 0.3 decrease in their GPA. 

There is no doubt that Terps are some of the hardest working students in the country. They haue to be 
in order to keep up with the demands of a new grading scale, limited enrollment program requirements and 
competition with other schools.

If a major is the depth of 
one's education, then general 
education is the breadth. The 
tujo, when introduced to one 
another, morph to produce the 
body of one's entire education. 
General education is a central 
focus of the Office of Under- 
graduate Studies. It serues as 
the defining factor that giues 
one's education uolume; with- 
out liberal arts and science 
courses, we would be restrict- 
ed to a one-dimensional per- 

This year, major changes 
happened in the Office of Un- 
dergraduate Studies. In the 
fall semester, the uniuersity 
implemented its new General 
Education plan, which had 
been in the making since 2009. 
The new program replaced the 
former CORE requirements. Ad- 
ministrators cite the main goal 
of the new General Education 

program as to make students 

The big switch aims to fulfill 
to an euen greater extent the 
Office's goals of creating global 
citizens, deueloping students' 
fundamental skills, introducing 
students to different disciplines 
and fostering intellectual dex- 

The plan highlights that the 
former CORE curriculum was so 
concentrated that three of the 
12 colleges offered 90 percent 
of the CORE seats, which was by 
far not an accurate portrayal of 
the uniuersity. 

The new plan giues those 
other nine colleges more op- 
portunity to participate in the 
General Education program, a 
change that proued beneficial 
to both colleges and students. 

With the General Education 
program, opportunities and 
the countless resources it pro- 

uides, the Office of Undergradu- 
ate Studies continues to employ 
dedicated faculty who striue to 
promote not only the academic 
success of students but also 
their personal and professional 
success. They encourage stu- 
dents to grow into themselues 
while building strong connec- 
tions with their peers, profes- 
sors, and the Uniuersity. 

In his speech to incoming 
freshmen in August 2011, Daue 
Baggett, class of '92, summed up 
the mission of the Office of Un- 
dergraduate Studies and its Gen- 
eral Education program perfect- 
ly, saying, "If there's one theme 
underlying creatiue thinking 
and innouation, it's juxtaposi- 
tion: making connections across 
preuiously large conceptual 
boundaries. Combining knowl- 
edge that seems unrelated is 
the path to breakthroughs."

The College of Agriculture & 
Natural Resources can easily be 
called the Uniuersity of Mary- 
land's original college, setting 
the f rameujork for the years to 
come. The Uniuersity of Mary- 
land ujas initially chartered as 
the Maryland Agricultural Col- 
lege in 1896. Three years later, 
it held its opening day on which 
34 students were enrolled. 
Nouj, the College of Agriculture 
& Natural Resources is home 
to more than 1200 students, a 
perfect illustration of the uni- 
uersity's huge expansion and 
emphasis on forward progress. 
According to the college's web- 
site, "For ouer 190 years, the 
College of Agriculture & Natu- 
ral Resources has functioned 

Academics Section Editor 

as the Uniuersity's 'front door' 
to the citizens of Maryland." 
This door is one that is con- 
stantly reuoluing. While hold- 
ing true to its ualues and strong 
foundation, the College of Agri- 
culture & Natural Resources is an 
euer-changing entity, molding 
itself to fit the needs of its stu- 
dents in an increasingly tech- 
nologically aduanced society. 
Related opportunities can 
also be found outside the for- 
mal classroom setting through 
clubs and organizations. These 
range from the college's stu- 
dent council and the Collegiate 
4-H to the Food and Nutrition 
Club, encompassing almost any 
interest imaginable. Don't see 
the club you are looking for? No 

worries! Just get a faculty adui- 
sor, and create it yourself. The 
power lies in the hands of the 
students but they cannot do it 
without faculty. 

Their teaching prowess is 
amplified by the profound re- 
search taking place both on 
campus and at the Maryland 
Agriculture Experiment Sta- 
tion's Research and Educa- 
tion Centers across the state. 
In its education and research 
programs, the college holds 
true to its founding principles 
through its land-grant mental- 
ity, emphasizing the impor- 
tance of maintaining harmony 
between an increasingly urban 
society and the natural enuiron- 
ment in which it deuelops.

The School of Architecture, 
Planning and Preseruation 
is home to one of Maryland's 
seueral Limited Enrollment 
Programs. These LEPs guaran- 
tee that the quality of the stu- 
dents' education remains top- 

Founded in 1967, the school 
has grown steadily since and 
today offers undergraduate 
and graduate degrees in four 
fields: Architecture, Urban 
Studies and Planning, Historic 
Preseruation, and Real Estate 

Through its interdisciplin- 
ary approach to problem solu- 
ing, the School of Architecture, 
Planning and Preseruation 
emphasizes the integration of 
technology and design, two 
areas that haue seen major 
changes in the last half-cen- 

tury. Despite changes ouer the 
years, hoiueuer, the school's 
mission has remained inuari- 
able. Through the uarious de- 
grees and programs offered, 
students continue to leaue 
the program as creatiue and 
thoughtful global citizens and 
leaders, an achieuement that 
would giue Founding Dean John 
W. Hill great pride. 

Students' success can be at- 
tributed not only to tremendous 
efforts and lots of hard work 
on their parts but also to the 
school's outstanding academ- 
ics. Students work in uibrant 
close-knit communities, emulat- 
ing situations in the workforce 
and deuelop close relationships 
with other students as well as 
the world-class faculty. Profes- 
sors engage students through 
research, lectures, creatiue 

design, colloquia and interac- 
tiue studies, all of which aided 
by the school's proximity to the 
Washington, D.C., Baltimore, 
and Annapolis. 

Graduating seniors enter the 
workforce as promoters of jus- 
tice, deuelopers of society, pro- 
tectors of the enuironment and 
connoisseurs of culture. 

Dean and Professor Dauid 
Cronrath congratulates these 
graduating seniors on their 
achieuements, saying, "The 
School of Architecture, Planning 
and Preseruation celebrates our 
graduates, the future leaders of 
a more sustainable world. The 
collaboratiue education that is 
our hallmark has prepared you 
well for the challenge of creat- 
ing an enuironment that is re- 
sponsiue to the needs of tomor- 
row's society."

The Uniuersity of Maryland 
may be a renowned research in- 
stitute, but that does not mean 
it neglects the liberal arts side 
of things. In the College of Arts 
and Humanities, or ARHU, the 
liberal arts flourish under the 
nourishment of enthusiastic 
faculty and engaged students. 
The college's mission, "To 
create global citizens equipped 
ta assess receiued opinion, 
make independent judgments, 
and ualue the transforming 
power of the imagination," is 
embodied in euery student. 
The college works feruently 
to deuelop students' critical 
thinking and writing, encour- 
aging life-long learning and 
appreciation of culture. From 
ARHU come independent- 
minded, ambitious graduates 
who take the teachings of oth- 
ers and turn them into new dis- 
coueries, furthering our under- 
standing of the contemporary 
world around us. 

These students graduate 

from the College of Arts and 
Humanities with degrees rang- 
ing from English, to Music, to 
Persian Studies, to Philosophy. 
Between majors, minors, cer- 
tificate programs, research and 
internships the opportunities 
are endless, augmented tenfold 
by the uniuersity's proximity to 
the nation's uibrant capital. 

Dean Thorton Dill, head 
of ARHU stresses the impor- 
tance of global thinking today. 
"Studying the arts and humani- 
ties prouides essential tools to 
explore and embrace diuerse 
ideas, perspectiues and life ex- 
periences. It equips you to go 
beneath the surface, to under- 
stand inference and implication 
and to hone and deuelop your 
imagination and creatiuity," 
said Dill. 

But students are not about 
to be outshined by the daz- 
zling Washington, D.C. The Col- 
lege of Arts and Humanities is 
home to recipients of presti- 
gious national awards. Six un- 

dergraduate students receiued 
Boren Scholarships, and two 
graduate students receiued 
Boren Fellowships. Two un- 
dergraduates and fiue gradu- 
ate students earned Fulbright 
awards. And one outstanding 
student. Brock Mcintosh, was 
named a 2012 Truman Scholar, 
a distinction recognizing lead- 
ership, intellectual ability, and 
potential to make a difference. 
The College of Arts and Hu- 
manities sets this make-a-dif- 
ference potential on a pedestal. 
The mission and uision center 
around producing global think- 
ers, empathetic leaders, cre- 
atiue problem-soluers, and big 
dreamers — people who will 
not just change the world, but 
will change it for the better. 
A liberal arts education through 
this college serues as the per- 
fect foundation, acting as a 
jumping block or a launch pad 
for students as they finish their 
academic careers and proceed 
on to enter the workforce.

Academics Section Editor 

With almost 9,600 under- 
graduate students, the Col- 
lege of Behauioral and Social 
Sciences (BSOS) is the largest 
of the 1Z colleges on campus 
in terms of the number of stu- 
dents it serues. As a matter of 
fact, approximately one out 
of euery fiue undergradu- 
ate students is a BSOS major. 

These majors are diuided 
into ten academic depart- 
ments, including the nation's 
number one Department of 
Criminology and Criminal Jus- 
tice. The college offers four of 
the fiue most popular majors 
on campus: Criminology and 
Criminal Justice, Psychology, 
Gouernment and Politics, and 
Economics. Other majors in- 
clude African American Studies, 
Anthropology, Enuironmental 
Science and Policy, Geography, 
Hearing and Speech Sciences, 
Psychology, and Sociology. 

Additionally, the college 
offers minor and certificate 
programs in African American 

Studies, Black Women's Stud- 
ies, Geographical Information 
Science, Global Studies, Hear- 
ing and Speech Sciences, In- 
ternational Deuelopment and 
Conflict Management, Neu- 
roscience, Suruey Methodol- 
ogy, and Terrorism Studies. 
Students of the Class of Z013 
are the next generation of poli- 
ticians, lawyers, economists, 
therapists, and much more. A 
degree from BSOS allows gradu- 
ates to shape their own future, 
and in turn, as global citizens, 
shape the future of our world. 

Among the exemplary fac- 
ulty are a Nobel Prize winner, a 
MacArthur Foundation Fellow- 
ship winner and three National 
Academy of Sciences members. 
These professors utilize an in- 
terdisciplinary approach to 
both education and research. 
Under the leadership of Dean 
and Professor John R.G. Town- 
shend, they striue diligently to 
exceed expectations in fulfilling 
the college's mission: to prouide 

a stimulating enuironment; to 
explore the human condition 
through research, teaching, 
and seruice; to explore health 
and culture, our social, politi- 
cal, legal and economic insti- 
tutions and the enuironment. 
Townshend holds a strong ui- 
sion for the College of Behauior- 
al and Social Sciences, "Looking 
through a yearbook and reflect- 
ing on the accomplishments 
of our students, faculty and 
alumni, I am reminded that the 
BSOS community is united by a 
common purpose: to improue 
the human condition. While you 
are here, you are trained with a 
thorough conception of human, 
political, social and economic 
institutions, world cultures, the 
enuironment, and the complex- 
ity of the human mind. While 
some of you will become speech 
therapists. Hill staffers, psychol- 
ogists, or economists— all of you 
haue the potential to address 
society's great challenges," said

With 2,990 undergraduate 
students enrolled in the Robert 
H. School of Business, approxi- 
mately 10 percent of the Uniuer- 
sity of Maryland's population 
has made this state-of-the-art 
school its sanctuary. The 2011 
U.S. News & World Report Best 
Undergraduate Business Pro- 
grams ranked the Smith School 
ninth in Supply Chain Manage- 
ment/Logistics, 10th in Man- 
agement, and seuenth in Man- 
agement Information Systems. 
The Robert H. Smith School 
of Business, an internationally 
recognized business school, of- 
fers undergraduate, MBA and 
Ph.D. programs. The school's 
uision for the learning enuiron- 
ment centers on global citizen- 
ship and real-ujorld applica- 
tion, deueloping future global 
business leaders who will enact 
positiue change in the world. 

As published in the 192^-29 
course catalog, the school's 
mission statement still stands. 
"The chief to pro- 
duce thinkers rather than 
routine workers, executiues 
rather than subordinates." 
Van Munching has seen many 
recent renouations, making it 
one of the most desirable build- 
ings in which to haue classes. 
Perhaps the most important of 
these renouations — in many 
students' eyes — is the unueil- 
ing of a new and improued 
Rudy's Cafe. The cafe offers as- 
sorted breakfast, snack and 
lunch foods, as well as beuer- 
ages and a featured coffee bar. 
But these are simply the 
frosting on the cake, for the 
real aduantages of the Smith 
School are its faculty and pro- 
grams. With more than 190 
full-time faculty members and 

50 part-time faculty, there 
is not a shortage of class op- 
portunities. Furthermore, the 
out-of-class opportunities are 
paramount. The school offers 
business-focused study abroad 
opportunities. Fellows pro- 
grams, scholarships, clubs and 
organizations and the Dingman 
Center for Entrepreneurship. 
All of these elements help stu- 
dents fulfill the Robert H. Smith 
School of Business's uision, one 
that they refer to as ambitious, 
aggressiue and achieuable. 
Students exemplify the uision 
through core ualues: creatiuity, 
innouatiue and entrepreneurial 
spirit, integrity, accountability 
and a global mindset. Such char- 
acteristics lead Smith students 
to become agents of economic 
prosperity and social change 
both during and after their time 
at UMD.

Collaboration is a quintes- 
sential element in the College 
of Computer, Mathematical and 
Natural Sciences. Established 
in October Z010, through the 
amalgamation of the former 
College of Chemical and Life Sci- 
ences and the College of Com- 
puter, Mathematical and Physi- 
cal Sciences, CMNS was founded 
upon the principle of integrat- 
ing different disciplines. The 
college striues to promote 
neuj knowledge through edu- 
cation, research and cross- 
disciplinary experiences. 

The nationally recognized 
college is diuided into 10 de- 
partments: astronomy, atmo- 
spheric and oceanic science, 
biology, cell biology and mo- 
lecular genetics, chemistry 
and biochemistry, computer 
science, entomology, geol- 
ogy, mathematics and physics. 
These departments house an 
abundance of minors and ma- 

jors, many of which are ranked 
among the top 10 in the nation's 
public research uniuersities. 
The college's outstanding fac- 
ulty helps to produce award- 
winning students. Recent Z012 
awardees include Eddie Fred- 
erick (2003 B.S. computer sci- 
ence and mathematics), co- 
founder, LiuingSocial, who won 
the Outstanding Young Alum- 
nus Award; Raul Kuchimanchi 
(1991 M.S., and 1999 Ph.D. phys- 
ics), founder. Association for 
India's Deuelopment, winner 
of the International Award for 
prouiding significant leader- 
ship to another country's edu- 
cational, cultural, social and/ 
or economic deuelopment; and 
John Quinn (1998 Ph.D. Phys- 
ics), professor and Willis Lincoln 
Chair of Excellence, Depart- 
ment of Physics, Uniuersity 
of Tennessee, recipient of the 
College of Computer, Math- 
ematical and Natural Sciences 

Distinguished Alumnus Award. 
These award-winning alum- 
ni are a testimony not only 
to the exceptional programs 
but also to its wealth of tal- 
ented students. As graduates 
of CMNS, students are keenly 
aware of their enuironment 
and the interplay between 
all the scientific disciplines. 
As distinguished physicist and 
Dean of the College of Comput- 
er, Mathematical and Natural 
Sciences Jayanth Banauar said, 
"With an integrated scientific 
college, Maryland is well posi- 
tioned to prepare the next gen- 
eration of scientists for the types 
of challenges they are likely to 
encounter. While strength in 
core disciplines is essential, the 
lines between them will contin- 
ue to blur, and we need to edu- 
cate a generation of creatiue re- 
searchers who can thriue in an 
interdisciplinary enuironment."

Within the learning sanctu- 
ary that is the Uniuersity of 
Maryland thriues a uibrant 
community centered on edu- 
cating future educators. 

Initially founded in 1919, the 
School of Education was re- 
named the College of Educa- 
tion the following year and 
has certainly euolued in the 
almost-century since then. 

The college is diuided into 
three departments: Teaching, 
Learning, Policy and Leader- 
ship; Counseling, Higher Edu- 
cation and Special Education; 
and Human Deuelopment and 
Quantitatiue Methodology. 

Through these departments, 
the college's approximately 
Z,000 undergraduate and 
graduate students can pursue 
a uariety of majors and minors 
in education. 

The College of Education 
houses programs accredited 
and approued by the National 
Council for Accreditation of 
Teacher Education, Maryland 
State Department of Educa- 
tion, American Psychological 

Association, and others. 

The research- and practice- 
oriented programs, which 
heauily emphasize equity and 
social justice, focus on what 
Dean Donna L. Wiseman, a for- 
mer public school teacher and 
a current professor at the uni- 
uersity, refers to as "the core 
tenets of successful teaching 
and learning." These tenets are 
inquiry and reflection, teaching 
for understanding, embracing 
diuersity and building demo- 
cratic learning communities. 

With a degree from the U.S. 
News & World Report consistent- 
ly top-ranked school, students 
continue on after graduation to 
obtain jobs as educators, coun- 
selors, psychologists, adminis- 
trators, researchers and educa- 
tional specialists, as the college 

"I loue being in the College of 
Education," said Annie Regan, 
class of 2013. "Where else do 
you get to color for a grade or 
interuiew second graders for a 
paper? Some people look down 
on teachers for those reasons, 

but education is the foundation 
of society. Teachers haue the 
priuilege of shaping the minds 
and spirits of thousands of chil- 
dren, but that will not stop peo- 
ple from taking public education 
and great teachers for granted... 
One of the best things a teacher 
can teach their students is how 
to teach themselues." 

Seniors graduate into the pro- 
fessional world with the irreuo- 
cable skills and knowledge they 
haue been giuen in their time 
at the Uniuersity of Maryland, 
which they, in turn, can pass 
on to future generations of ea- 
ger learners by means of their 

They continue to fulfill the 
dreams of the college, as ex- 
pressed in its uision statement: 
"Our students will be the next

aduocates of social justice and 
educational reform, dedicated 
to improuing opportunities and 
outcomes in ail areas of prac-

The A. James Clark School 
of Engineering is not merely a 
smaller school within a large 
uniuersity; it is an entire eco- 
system, connecting dedicated 
students, top-tier professors 
and incredible opportunities 
in its ujeb of collaboratiue ap- 
proaches, cross-disciplinary 
education and state-of-the-art 
research and facilities — all of 
which serue to glue students 
the best experience possible. 

Engineering is centered on 
problem soluing through the 
application of uarious types 
of knowledge, including — 
but not limited to — scientific, 
economic, social, practical, 
enuironmental and aesthetic 
knowledge. So it seems obuious 
that this engineering school's 
multidisciplinary approach is 
one of the best. 
Within the departments, the 

school's approximately 3,000 
undergraduate students can se- 
lect from nine different majors 
and fiue different minors taught 
by more than 200 tenured and 
tenure-track faculty. 

Among the distinguished fac- 
ulty are more than 90 recipients 
of National Science Foundation 
Early Career Awards. About 90 
percent of all faculty members 
are fellows of professional en- 
gineering societies, and many 
are members of the National 
Academy of Engineering. 

Not surprisingly, the stellar 
faculty has produced incredible 
students, making the Uniuersity 
of Maryland one of the top en- 
gineering choices in the nation. 
Notable alumni include the pre- 
dictable A. James Clark, class of 
1990, for whom the school was 
named and who went on to be- 
come the Chairman and CEO of 

Clark Enterprises, Inc., as well as 
class of 1977 graduate Michael 
D. Griffin, is the former director 
of the National Aeronautics and 
Space Administration (NASA) 

Those are only a couple of ex- 
amples of the copious entrepre- 
neurial and innouatiue gradu- 
ates to come through the School 
of Engineering. 

Class of 2013 member and 
Clark School Ambassador Sarah 
Saxon, a ciuil and enuironmen- 
tal engineering major from Bal- 
timore, reports that she chose 
this uniuersity for its "national- 
ly ranked engineering programs 
and all of the opportunities that 
UMD has to offer," both inside 
and outside the A. James Clark 
School of Engineering. 

In her Clark School Ambassa- 
dor bio, Saxon writes, "It is truly 
a unique institution."

For some students, furthering 
their education doesn't stop at 
a Bachelor's degree. 

The Uniuersity of Maryland 
is prepared to foster these stu- 
dents through the Graduate 
School as they pursue higher 
degrees and certifications from 
the nationally renowned uni- 

In his "Welcome from the 
Dean," Dr. Charles Caramello, 
dean of the Graduate School, 
describes the Uniuersity of 
Maryland as, "one of the pre- 
mier centers for graduate edu- 
cation, research, scholarship 
and creatiue actiuity in the 
United States." 

His statement certainly does 
not fall short of its promises. 
Maryland is home to more 200 
graduate degree programs, 
and, like its students, the Grad- 

uate School continues to further 
itself through new initiatiues 
and deuelopments, all of which 
are aimed at gluing exceptional 
graduate students the best edu- 
cation possible. 

Established in 1919, the Gradu- 
ate School has grown since its 
humble beginnings, going from 
a mere 12 students to an enroll- 
ment of approximately 11,000 
diligent students. 

The school constantly striues 
to help its students achieue 
their own personal goals by 
fulfilling its mission: aduancing 
graduate education and en- 
hancing the graduate student 

In order to realize the afore- 
mentioned mission, the Gradu- 
ate School's faculty and admin- 
istrators focus on fiue key areas: 
leadership, ouersight, support. 

seruice and aduocacy. 

In the 2008-2013 strategic plan 
that will be reuisited next year, 
representatiues of the Graduate 
School write the following. 

"The Uniuersity of Maryland 
will join the elite company of 
the most distinguished public re- 
search institutions and become 
widely known and respected for 
an ouerall uniuersity doctoral 
program that has achieued the 
highest leuel of excellence. 

The Uniuersity of Maryland 
will excel in both transitional 
and terminal masters degree 
and graduate certificate pro- 
grams, including professional 
programs that are responsiue 
to the needs of the community; 
are committed to the highest 
leuel of academic standards; 
and are agile and competitiue in 
the marketplace."

If knowledge Is, indeed, poiu- 
er, then students of the Unluer- 
slty of Maryland's College of In- 
formation Studies (iSchool) are 
certainly on the right track. 

Approximately 900 students, 
on auerage, are enrolled in the 
college, which was founded in 
the fall of 1969. 

These passionate gradu- 
ate students thriue amidst the 
wealth of information in our 
increasingly technologically 
aduanced world, studying in- 
formation management and 
technology and inuestigating 
how information affects us in 
all areas— gouernment, health 
care, employment, education, 
and more, as the college's web- 
site states. They constantly 
search for new and innouatiue 
ways through which people 
can find, access and transmit 
ideas and information. 

In this golden age of techno- 

logical growth, many of these 
mediums for information stor- 
age and distribution inuolue 
computers and multimedia; dig- 
ital libraries, social networking, 
mobile computing deuices and 
the internet play key roles in 
the academic and professional 
careers of students in the uni- 
uersity's iSchool. 

Eager and adept students 
graduate from the iSchool with 
uarious degrees, including Mas- 
ter of Library Science, Master of 
Information Management and 
Master of Human-Computer In- 

These graduates truly under- 
stand and embrace the inter- 
locking web that is information 
technology. They striue to fa- 
cilitate growth in all areas— be 
it cultural, economic— through 
the pursuit and spread of knowl- 
edge in a way that connects us 
all to a larger world, one that is 

more accessible than euer. 

Students in this tight-knit 
community build upon their un- 
dergraduate studies, forming a 
strong foundation in library sci- 
ence and information studies, 
on which they base their Mas- 
ter's degrees. 

In fact, Maryland's iSchool 
is ranked by U.S. News & World 
Report as one of the premier in- 
formation schools in the nation, 
with fiue specializations listed 
in the Top 10, according to the 

It seems obuious, then, that 
the College of Information Stud- 
ies is fulfilling its mission. 

As the College's website says, 
students are, "driuen by the pur- 
suit of big ideas and new discou- 
eries, to imagine how we can 
empower citizens, inspire com- 
munities, energize economies 
and sustain democracies."

The Philip Merrill College of 
Journalism has rapidly become 
one of the premier colleges 
of journalism in not only the 
country but also the world, 
wielding top-tier facilities, 
aujard-ujinning faculty and 
stellar students and boasting 
an enuiable location just out- 
side the media metropolis of 
Washington, D.C. 

Albeit these qualities are 
enough for the college to riual 
Columbia Uniuersity's leading 
journalism college, it is some- 
thing beyond the surface that 
makes the Merrill College ter- 
rific. Perhaps it has to do with 
the college's warm atmosphere 
and inuiting classrooms. Re- 
gardless, the school has by far 
realized its uision. 

In its Z009 strategic plan, 
the college aims to, "Within 
10 years...become one of the 
best journalism colleges in the 
world." Four years later, hau- 
ing already achieued its goal, it 

seems as though it is time for a 
new uision statement. 

Naturally, giuen that the 
school has reached such a leuel 
of prestige, it has been follow- 
ing through in its mission to 
educate with a multimedia and 
focused approach founded on 
the breadth of a liberal arts ed- 
ucation. Giuen that the College 
of Journalism is one of Mary- 
land's nine Limited Enrollment 
Programs, the bar is set euen 
higher for student admissions. 

It is for this reason, though, 
that newsroom executiues ea- 
gerly seek out Merrill students 
and graduates to fill open po- 
sitions. The college's website 
cites Washington Post recruiter 
Peter Perl as listing Maryland at 
the top when naming quality 
journalism programs. 

Philip (Phil) Merrill, the own- 
er and publisher of The Capital 
newspaper in Annapolis, The 
Maryland Gazette, Washingto- 
nian magazine and four other 

area newspapers, made a gen- 
erous contribution to the uni- 
uersity, upon which the journal- 
ism school was renamed in his 
honor. The school's namesake, 
who died in 2006, would likely 
be thrilled to see how much the 
school has grown in the past 
seueral years, as he is quoted 
as saying he wanted to help the 
college "achieue its goal of be- 
ing the uery best in the nation." 

In recent j-school news, Exec- 
utiue Director of the Reporters 
Committee for Freedom of the 
Press Lucy Dalglish was named 
the new dean of the Philip Mer- 
rill College of Journalism, suc- 
ceeding Dean Keuin Klose on 

The newly appointed Dean 
Dalglish has been working dili- 
gently to further expand the 
Uniuersity of Maryland's jour- 
nalism program to produce top- 
notch journalists in what she 
calls the "exciting and changing 
world of journalism." 












Community Health (BS) 
Family Science (BS) 
Kinesiology (BS) 



Academics Section Editor 

Although it is still in its early 
days, the school boasts gradu- 
ates who share a common goal 
of promoting health on both 
local and global leuels. These 
students embody the mission 
to "promote and protect the 
health and well-being of citi- 
zens of Maryland, the nation 
and the world through interdis- 
ciplinary education, research, 
public policy and practice." 

As one of the most diuerse 
schools on campus, the School 
of Public Policy wields stu- 
dents, an unusual proportion 
of whom are women, pursuing 
degrees in six academic units: 
Behauioral and Community 
Health, Epidemiology and Bio- 
statistics, Kinesiology, Family 
Science, Maryland Institute for 
Applied Enuironmental Health, 
and Health Seruices Adminis- 
tration. It offers a uariety of 
degrees within these units to 

undergraduate, graduate and 
doctoral students who learn 
from an enriched curriculum 
taught by exceptional faculty. 
Research proues to be a major 
aspect of the School of Public 
Health, and students and pro- 
fessors alike utilize the many 
centers and laboratories with 
which the school is affiliated, 
making its location on the out- 
skirts of Washington, D.C. ex- 
tremely ualuable. 

As its website states, the 
school offers countless op- 
portunities with nearby in- 
stitutions, including the Food 
and Drug Administration and 
National institutes of Health. 
Upon graduation, members of 
the class of 2013 may uery well 
end up working for one of these 
renowned institutions. 

This past summer, Robert S. 
Gold stepped down as dean, 
electing to remain on the 

School's faculty. He was re- 
placed by long-time kinesiology 
professor Dr. Jane Clark, who 
continues the school's dedica- 
tion to producing future policy- 
makers and educators by means 
of educating students through a 
firm ground in science, research 
and an interdisciplinary ap- 

A message from former Dean 
Gold reads, "As Dean of the Uni- 
uersity of Maryland School of 
Public Health, is it my honor and 
pleasure to congratulate our 
graduates. I want also to chal- 
lenge them to begin finding so- 
lutions to some uexing health 
problems facing the world to- 
day. Each of our graduates has 
a role to play in reuersing these 
problems and also haue a re- 
sponsibility to 'aduance a better 
state of health' for ourselues, 
our families, our communities, 
our state and beyond."

The School of Public Policy 
celebrates its 2013 graduates, 
society's future leaders and en- 
actors of social change. These 
graduate students haue suc- 
cessfully completed the degree 
requirements to earn the title 
of "Master." 

The graduates step into the 
workforce from the School's 
fiue primary degree programs: 
Master of Public Policy, Master 
of Public Management, Execu- 
tiue Master of Public Manage- 
ment, Master of Engineering 
and Public Policy and Master of 
Public Administration. 

Ranging from 30 to kQ cred- 
its, these academic degree pro- 
grams share common ground 
in their focus on analyzing, 
designing, eualuating and ad- 
uocating for policies that affect 
people on the local to interna- 
tional leuels. 

In an effort to better society, 
these data masters help orga- 
nizations, many of which are 
nonprofits or priuate sectors, 
by aiding them to decipher 
what can be quite cryptic data, 
then applying analytical skills 
in order to figure out the best 
plan of action. 

Academics Section Editor 

Like other schools and col- 
leges within the Uniuersity of 
Maryland, the School of Public 
Policy emphasizes an interdis- 
ciplinary approach to its rigor- 
ous curriculum, drawing from 
students' undergraduate stud- 
ies and building upon them 
through a series of degree re- 

Students in the Master of Pub- 
lic Policy program may choose a 
specialization in enuironmental 
policy, international deuelop- 
ment, international security 
and economic policy, manage- 
ment and leadership, public 
sector financial management 
or social policy. 

Similar to the Master of Public 
Policy program and offering the 
same core specializations, the 
Master of Public Management 
degree welcomes students 
who haue at least fiue years 
of professional public policy or 
management experience prior 
to entering the school. Essen- 
tially, it is a shorter uersion of 
the aforementioned Master of 
Public Policy program. 

Many students elect to enter 
the School's Executiue Master 
of Public Management degree 

program instead, which offers 
a more management-based fo- 
cus. Students take courses that 
heauily focus on leadership and 
successful business practices 
and graduate as the genera- 
tion's new corporate executiues 
and public leaders. 

Students in the Master of Pub- 
lic Administration studies pro- 
gram pursue their degrees with 
a more international perspec- 
tiue, with the hope of utilizing 
their analytical and leadership 
skills on a larger scale. 

The final primary degree pro- 
gram. Master of Engineering 
and Public Policy, utilizes the A. 
James Clark School of Engineer- 
ing's expertise and the School 
of Public Policy's leadership 
and management emphasis to 
produce students with a firm 
grasp of responsible technical 
processes and policies in our in- 
creasingly technological world. 

School of Public Policy Dean 
Donald F. KettI on the School's 
website describes the programs' 
emphasis on "Three C's": prouid- 
ing students with "the Capacity, 
the Capability, and the Clarity to 
excel as public seruice leaders."

Students at Uniuersity of Maryland are certainly neuer bored. With multiple options for euerything from 
clubs, dining, studying, recreation and traueling, each Terp is bound to find something to do. 

There are ouer 800 clubs and organizations to explore, couering all kinds of areas of interest, from geol- 
ogy to origami to ukuleles. Students gather in the Adele H. Stamp Student Union to eat at the food court, see 
mouies or performances in Hoff Theater or buy spirit wear at the Uniuersity Book Center. In their doujn time, 
Terps study in one of Maryland's eight libraries, or hang out in one of 37 residence halls. Half of on-campus resi- 
dents are in one of Maryland's 19 liuing-learning programs. And when they need a study break, students can 
go to Eppley Recreation Center to try a group fitness class, siuim in the pool or climb the ropes course. 

If students euer get sick of campus life, they can either walk or take a bus to Route 1 and check out the 
many dining, shopping or entertainment options. And for those itching to get a little farther away, Maryland 
offers many study abroad programs that take students anywhere from Australia to Denmark to Puerto Rico. 

With so many options both on campus and off, it doesn't take long for a Terp to come out of her shell and 
find her niche.

The First Look Fair is the most exciting part of the 
fall semester for eueryone, from incoming freshman to 
graduating seniors. Not only is a great place to meet 
new people and haue some fun with games and food, 
but it is also the ultimate setting to learn about all the 
different clubs, organizations and opportunities that 
are auailable on the Uniuersity of Maryland campus. 
There's new opportunities for eueryone- there are 
Honor Societies, cultural dance groups that uary glob- 
ally and euen uolunteer organizations in the College 
Park area. 

"The First Look Fair gaue me an idea of the uast 
amount of clubs at UMD and being able to talk to ac- 
tual members helped spark my interest more easily," 
says Rama Atikar, a sophomore biology major on the 
EntouRAAS Indian dance team. "Little did I know that 
after just a quick walkthrough, I would end up joining 
a traueling dance team and competing in places like 
Boston, Miami and Dallas." 

Not only do competitiue dance teams participate 
in the fair, but so do Student Associations and Honor 
Societies. One could euen get inuolued with the sur- 
rounding College Park area, such as the Miss College 
Park pageant. Student Associations tend to uary cul- 
turally, but no matter what your ethnic origin, there's 
always an Association that will welcome you. "The 
Indian Student Association Formal last spring was a 
blast," says Nadia Ponnosion, a mechanical engineer- 
ing sophomore. "I was the only non-Asian there, but it 
was a great experience and a lot of fun."

South Campus Dining Hall is the 
best place to get food on campus. 
There are the typical sandwich- 
es, salads and pizza, but the Jala- 
peno Grill, Mongolian Grill, Make- 
Your-Oujn-Pasta and a salad bar 
with uirtually euery topping 
imaginable make it truly out of 
this ujorld. The Diner also holds 
special euents each month, such 
as special ice cream, cookies and 

dinner specials. Its conuenient 
location makes it a great place to 
stop by for lunch and the amaz- 
ing food makes it a great place to 
go back to. 

"There's neuer a long wait and 
eueryone that works there is re- 
ally polite." says ciuil engineer- 
ing sophomore Eric Coraggio. 
Just as the North Campus Diner 
offers, the South Campus Dining 

Hall prouides Late Night for the 
campus night owls. Late Night I 
euen has new healthier options, 
such as Tex Mex Salad Bar, Bel- 
gian Waffle Bar, Cereal Bar and 
Deli Sandwiches. There are spe- 
cialties pizzas that can be bought 
whole by request. The Jalapeno 
Grill is where you can buy fajita- 
style burritos, tacos and home- 
made nachos. 



One of the best aspects of 
College Park is the uariety of 
food auailable to its students. 
Tiuenty-one food stations serue 
regional, Italian, Hispanic, and 
Asian specialties, freshly-made 
sandwiches, comfort foods, sal- 
ads, grill selections, uegetarian 
and uegan meals, baked goods 
and ice cream euery day. 
There are a uariety of options 

for students to try new items eu- 
ery day or stick to the same fa- 
uorites if they choose to do so. In 
addition to the ouerabundance 
of options and an awesome staff, 
the dining hall holds "Late Night" 
dining hours until midnight Sun- 
day through Thursday. 

In the spring of 201Z, a pasta 
bar like in the South Campus 
Diner was added, much to the 

joy of many students who were 
looking for something new and 
fresh. Not only are there differ- 
ent food options, but the diner 
is also a great place to hang out 
and relax. The staff is cordial and 
efficient, and it's location in the 
center of most residence halls 
makes it a great hangout for 
meals, group projects, and quiet 
time to get work done. 

Included in North Campus Din- 
ing Hall is 291 North. 291 is located 
In the Denton Community on the 
north side of campus. It is UMD's 
only all-you-can-eat dining hall 
with a Cold Stone Creamery-style 
ice cream shop called Cool Beans. 
Here you can order delicious and 
innumerable combinations of 
toppings on Maryland Dairy's fa- 
mous homemade ice-cream. 

Not only are there dining-in 
options, but also, when on the 
go, the Denton and Cambridge 
Conuenience Stores are the per- 
fect places to stop for a snack 
or drink. Both Denton and Cam- 
bridge are open beyond the 
normal hours of the diner and 
they haue coffee, cereals, chips, 
frozen dinners as well as a wide 
array of ready-made salads and 

sandwiches and fruits and ueg- 
etables that can be purchased 
at any time of the day. Students 
can not only get basic supplies 
for classes such as notebooks, 
pencils and flashcards, but also 
supplies for liuing on campus: de- 
odorant, double-sided tape, and 
face wash. Opened at uirtually 
all hours, these stores are the ul- 
timate spots of conuenience. 

k ^H 




The Adele H. Stamp Student Union, a 
fauorite spot for all students from fresh- 
men to seniors, is something for Terps to 
be proud of. Housed in this central hub of 
campus is a food court, a coffee house, a 
co-op marketplace, a bowling alley, quiet 
areas for studying and group work, meet- 
ing rooms for student organizations, and 
so much more. No Terp can say they'ue 
spent four years on campus without uis- 
iting the Stamp. And whether it's the an- 
nual Stamp All Nighter, a mouie premiere 
with student Entertainment Euents, or 
hosting Gouernor O'Malley for a Question 
6 rally, something exciting is always hap- 
pening at Stamp.

maintaining the shop. The work- 
ers also share the responsibili- 
ties with uolunteers who receiue

Co-op is popular among students 
because it offers many healthy, 
uegetarian-friendly foods. For

The Uniuersity Book Center 
(UBC) is the on-campus book- 
store located in the Adele H. 
Stamp Student Union. Because 
the UBC is affiliated with Barnes 
and Noble and has a large stock 

of books, many students pur- 
chase their textbooks there. In 
addition to textbooks, the UBC 
sells magazines, school supplies, 
apparel, and uarious uniuersity- 
themed gifts. As expected, most 

items found in the UBC are cen- 
tered on the uniuersity and pro- 
uide a source of team spirit and 
pride. The UBC is a good place to 
pick up much needed supplies at 
anytime during the school year.

the First Year Book. Hoff Theater 
is a multi-faceted uenue for both 
students and faculty to utilize.

Transportation at College Park 
is one of the most conuenient 
seruices that the school offers. 
From buses to shuttles, DOTS is 
the safest and best way to trauel. 
As sophomore Greg Holland 
said "When I sprained my ankle, 
the paratransit driuers saued my 
life. I neuer would haue been 
able to hobble to classes the 
whole day." 

These buses not only transport 
around campus, but around the 

College Park area. There are lines 
that can take you to the Varsity 
or the Metro, which can take you 
anywhere in Washington D.C., 
such the College Park Airport. 
DOTS can also take you some- 
where downtown for the night 
or just to Hyattsuille or Greenbelt 
to Target or Wal-Mart for school 
supplies. DOTS shuttles euen run 
late at night. Students can call a 
number that connects them to 
NiteRide, a shuttle system that 

runs from 2AM to 6AM, that can 
pick them up almost anywhere 
in the College Park region and es- 
cort them back to their dorms or 

"Nite Ride is the perfect tool 
to use in different situations," 
says Naomi Cole, a sopho- 
more. "Whether the buses haue 
stopped running, it's late or 
you're just plain lazy, Nite Ride 
is efficient and reliable. Two 
thumbs up, three if I could."

The Eppley Recreation Cen- 
ter (the ERC) is the gym that is 
located on North Campus. It is 
across from La Plata Beach and 
in between Ellicott Community 
and the Cambridge Community, 
making it the ideal location for 
any student who wants to go to 
the gym and happens to Hue on 
North Campus. Opened at almost 
uirtually all hours of the day, it is 
also the ideal place to work out 
in the morning, during the day 

and late at night. The cardio and 
strength machines are only one 
portion of the gym. 

In the basement are an array 
of gyms that students and oth- 
er people can gather in to play 
games of badminton, uolleyball 
and basketball. Another portion 
of the ERC are the many fitness 
classes that are open to any stu- 
dent at UMD. From spin classes 
that can be taken in the morn- 
ing, outside and in the euening. 

to fun Zumba dance classes that 
are always packed on Friday 
nights to weightlifting classes 
for eueryone from beginners to 

"I think the ERC does a great job 
with their fitness classes. They 
offer lots of workout options and 
there always seems to be some- 
thing new to try no matter what 
your schedule is like," said senior

Situated in a prominent spot at 
the top of the mall, McKeldin Li- 
brary is the main library on cam- 
pus. There are six other libraries 
on campus: the Engineering and 
Physical Sciences Library, the Art 
Library, the Michelle Smith Per- 
forming Arts Library, Hornbake 
Library, and the White Memorial 
Chemistry Library, and the Archi- 
tecture Library. 

McKeldin has seuen floors and 
tujo wings. It houses about 13 
million books, including educa- 

tional books and popular read- 
ing books. Since it is the main li- 
brary on campus, many students 
choose to ujork there. Thus, 
McKeldin features uaried places 
to ujork together. The first floor 
features Footnotes Cafe, uihere 
students can purchase snacks or 
drinks and work at tables luith 
friends. On the second floor 
there is the Terrapins Learning 
Commons, which is a place for 
groups to work together and 
lounge in comfy booths. There 

are also great places to do in- 
diuidual work, like in the peri- 
odicals section or the third floor. 
The sixth floor houses rooms for 
special euents, including lec- 
tures and receptions. There are 
also areas for people who need 
special accommodations such as 
adaptiue technology. 

Aside from the uarious spe- 
cialized libraries, the Hornbake 
Library houses the uniuersity's

Located right across from the 
Student Stamp Union, there is 
no better place to go than to the 
Health Center when you're feel- 
ing off. Equipped for x-rays, bro- 
ken bones and euen full blood 
ujork tests, it is the best place to 
go when a student is feeling un- 
der the weather. The center has 
its own online system to make an 
appointment, separating each 
student's needs in an efficient 
manner. When scheduling the 
appointment online, the web- 
site asks the student to narrow 
down their symptoms so that the 
appointment can be made with 
the type of doctor best suited for 

"I used to go to the Health 
Center for allergy shots twice a 
week," said senior elementary 
education major Abbey Lyons. 
"Eueryone was really helpful 
and friendly. They usually seem 
to know what they're doing." 

Equipped with both clinical 
seruices and mental health ser- 

uices, the Health Center is pre- 
pared for almost any ailment or 
personal problem and is able to 
help with not only traditional 
allopathic methods (through ra- 
diology, dental care and urgent 
care), but also osteopathic meth- 
ods, such as acupuncture and 

The Health Center also pro- 
uides occupational and physical 
therapy, orthopedic or sports 
therapy, flu shots and other al- 
lergy and immunization seruices. 
Mental Health Seruices includes 
therapy and psychiatry options. 
Students can talk to therapists 
who are also auailable to help 
with substance abuse and sui- 
cide preuention outreach. The 
Health Center prouides all stu- 
dents with education seruices 
such as alcohol and other drug 
preuention, stress management, 
wellness counseling and best 
of all, meditation on Tuesdays 
through Thursdays. 

Another portion of the Health 

Center is the Center for Health 
and Wellbeing, which was start- 
ed by Meghan Cohen, a graduate 
from this uniuersity. She empha- 
sizes areas of fitness, stress man- 
agement and sexual assault pre- 

The center has seueral pro- 
grams, many of which focus on 
counseling and relaxation for 
students. In terms of health fit- 
ness, Cohen also offers diet anal- 
ysis, body composition testing 
and blood pressure screening. 
Each month brings a new euent 
or national awareness. In Febru- 
ary, former "Biggest Loser" con- 
testant Chris Blackburn spoke to 
students about what it takes to 
Hue a healthy life. 

Ouerall, the Health Center fo- 
cuses on prouiding high quality, 
cost-effectiue health care and 
wellness programs in order to 
promote health and support aca- 
demic success in each student, 
acting as an integral part of the 
Uniuersity's educational mission.

The uniuersity offers uast op- 
portunities for students to study 
abroad. Education Abroad of- 
fers semester and year-long pro- 
grams, exchanges with foreign 
uniuersities, and winter, spring 
break and summer trips. 

Semester and year-long pro- 
grams take place in a uariety of 
countries, including Italy, the 
United Kingdom, Spain, South 
Korea, Australia, Germany, Isra- 
el, France, and China. Although 
most of the programs that stu- 
dents opt to participate in are 
associated directly with the 
uniuersity, some students may 
choose to do an exchange with a 
foreign uniuersity instead. 

Semester and year-long study 
abroad programs offer students 
the opportunity to truly emerge 
themselues in a different culture. 
While abroad, most students Hue 
with other undergraduate stu- 
dents in apartments, which al- 
lows them to Hue independently 
in another culture. The apart- 
ments are not necessarily in the 

same neighborhoods, so stu- 
dents haue a daily opportunity 
to uisit friends and explore the 
city they are studying in. Stu- 
dents haue the chance to enroll 
in seueral courses at their host 
uniuersity that are unique to the 
culture they are liuing in. 

Trips abroad that are offered 
during breaks are faculty-led 
and centered on a specific course 
that may count as either a gen- 
eral education or major require- 
ment. These trips range from one 
to about three weeks and are 
open to most students. Although 
they are shorter trips, short-term 
study abroad prouides students 
with the unique opportunity to 
go to another country to take 
a course they might otherwise 
take in the familiar surroundings 
of College Park. 

For freshmen. Education Abroad 
currently offers Terrapin Take Off 
and Destination London. Ter- 
rapin Take Off offers incoming 
freshman the opportunity to do 
a short-term study abroad the 

summer before their first semes- 
ter. This giues them a chance to 
come in with a few credits, meet 
other incoming freshman, and 
form a close relationship with 
faculty members. 

Destination London is a pro- 
gram for freshman to study 
abroad in London during their 
first semester. Students in Des- 
tination London Hue together 
and enroll in general educa- 
tion courses. Their experience 
is uery similar to that of upper- 
leuel undergraduates studying 
abroad for a semester. Howeuer, 
students in Destination London 
haue a resident assistant liuing 
with them. Both of these pro- 
grams foster a great sense of in- 
dependence for freshman. 

Ouerall, studying abroad pro- 
uides students with incredible 
opportunities to explore another 
culture and take their learning to 
another leuel. Study abroad pro- 
motes independence and cultur- 
al awareness that is necessary in 
our world today.

With ouer 96 chapters on campus, the Greel< community has a dominant presence on Uniuersity of Mary- 
land's campus. These chapters are represented by four different gouerning bodies: the Interfraternity Council, 
Panhellenic Association, National Pan-Hellenic Council and United Greek Council. Each of these are ouerseen 
by the Department of Fraternity and Sorority Life, which is dedicated to deueloping and supporting Greeks. 

All of these organizations initiate members who share the same ualues and ujill uphold them through 
academic, social and philanthropic euents. Greeks dedicate many hours to seruing their chapter's philanthro- 
py by raising money or hands-on uolunteering. They also study hard to ensure their GPA meets the Uniuersity 
and their chapter's requirement. Additionally, the Greek community has fun participating in Homecoming and 
Greek Week actiuities, including athletics and skits, each semester. 

Maryland is also home to many academic honor and seruice co-ed fraternities. These organizations 
serue to prouide with personal and professional deuelopment outside the classroom. Through these uaried 
organizations, the students proue to be diuerse, committed, and inuolued community members.

is not to be taken lightly. 

For these euents, each soror-

Many a student ponders about 
whether Greek Life is for them: 
Will they like the people? Is it 
worth the time and money? That 
is what the recruitment process 
is all about: finding the right fit. 
Recruitment happens once a se- 
mester, sometimes only once a 
year, and each process is differ- 

For the sororities, there is 
both formal and informal re- 
cruitment. Informal recruitment 
happens in the fall semester. For 
this recruitment, girls are able 
to attend whateuer parties they 
would like, with no expectation 
of staying for the whole party. 
Many parties will be at the same 
time, so it is hard to stay at only 
one party. A bid can be extended 
at any time, and can be held for a 
certain length of time. 

Formal recruitment for soro- 
ri ties is in the spring semester, 
and is a structured style that re- 
quires girls to look into all possi- 

ble houses on campus. The girls 
going through recruitment are 
giuen Rho Gammas, otherwise 
known as recruitment guides, 
which also split the girls up into 
seueral groups to go through the 
different rounds. There are four 
rounds of recruitment: house 
tours, philanthropy, skits, and 
preference. The process of going 
through the rounds takes about 
a week, holding euents on the 
weekends. Bid day comes right 
after preference round, and girls 
haue the choice to accept or de- 
cline their bid that day. If they 
choose to sign their bid, they go 
and celebrate with their new sis- 

For fraternities, the process is 
a bit simpler. They now conduct 
fall open houses for interested 
students to attend and find the 
right fit for them. There is also a 
"Greek 101" session in the spring 
to inform potential candidates 
about the process and the dif- 

ferent fraternities. The students 
then choose a specific house to 
rush, instead of going through 
all the houses like sororities. 
Although the boys pick which 
house they want to rush, they 
still haue to acquire a bid from 
the fraternity of choice. Recruit- 
ments happen in the fall and in 
the spring. 

Recruitment is intimidating on 
both sides of the process. Jack 
Quesinberry, senior microbiol- 
ogy and German double major in 
Phi Kappa Psi, explains that it is 
an intense week to go through: 
"It's a nighmarishly busy week 
of handshakes, stories, food, 
more stories, and making friends 
faster than should be humanly 
possible. It's chaos, but it's chal- 
lenging, it's rewarding and at the 
end of the day, you get to shape 
the future." In the end, all the 
people who rushed find their 
new homes.

When picturing a college cam- 
pus, seueral images can come to 
mind; the library, students walk- 
ing around, and perhaps, for 
some, the picturesque houses on 
Fraternity Row. 

Fraternity Row and the Gra- 
ham Cracker prouide 21 Uniuer- 
sity-owned houses for the uni- 
uersity's Greek Life. With the 
finished renouations of Alpha 
Phi and Phi Sigma Sigma and the 
return of Alpha Xi Delta, euery 
Uniuersity-owned house is in use 
for the year. 

Each house differs for each 
different organization: no two 
houses are the same. The houses 
uary by decor, amount of stu- 
dents who Hue in the house, and 
daily actiuities that take place in 
the household. The houses are 
similar to dorm life with commu- 
nal bathrooms and roommates, 
with the exception of the presi- 

dent who usually gets a single 

The selection process for hous- 
ing is unique to each organiza- 
tion. The Uniuersity leases the 
houses to the chapter alumni. 
The chapters then go through 
their different processes to get 
their members into the house. 
The alumni manage all house- 
hold issues, including meals, 
cleaning, and household con- 

This year marks the end of 
the renouation process for the 
Uniuersity-owned houses. Fra- 
ternity Row houses were reno- 
uated beginning in the 1990's. 
Once those were completed, the 
Uniuersity planned to moue on 
to the Graham Cracker houses. 
Howeuer, those renouations did 
not begin until 2007. Now that 
the process of renouating is com- 
plete, the Department of Frater- 

nity and Sorority Life is focusing 
on keeping the houses running 
smoothly, and hoping to keep 
the houses in top shape for seu- 
eral years. 

Life in the house is an experi- 
ence like no other. Who else gets 
to Hue in a big beautiful house, 
with countless sisters, or broth- 
ers, one room ouer; talk about 
family bonding time! 

Call Mrohs, a senior family 
science and Spanish linguistics 
major in Delta Gamma, is enjoy- 
ing euery moment she gets in 
her house: "I will neuer again be 
afforded the opportunity to liue 
with so many friends who are 
equally appreciatiue of the sis- 
terhood and loue we haue cre- 
ated here." 

For these Greek members, it's 
not just the place they liued in 
college, the members created a

Derby Days, Anchor Splash, 
Breastfest; what are all of these 
euents? To many, these luould 
be what are called "Greek Fests." 
Hoiueuer, there is much more 
meaning behind these euents. 
Each of the euents are fundrais- 
ers for the different philanthro- 
pies of the Greek organizations. 
Each organization has their 
own philanthropy that they 
fundraise for euery year. These 
euents help to raise the money 
and create awareness for each 
different cause. Different philan- 
thropies include breast cancer 
awareness, ALS awareness, ser- 
uice for sight, domestic uiolence, 
and so much more. 

Derby Days is a great example 
of a philanthropic euent. Each 
year, Sigma Chi holds a week- 
long euent that has the sororities 
competing for the Derby Days 

Cameren Steuenson, senior 
Family Science major in Sigma 
Chi, said his "fauorite thing 
about Derby Days is competing 
against other sororities. I was a 

coach for Delta Gamma and I re- 
ally enjoyed getting them excit- 
ed for the euents and getting to 
know them all." 

The different euents consist 
of shrinking square, obstacle 
course, and mattress races. There 
is also a penny war and ban- 
ner competition. For the ban- 
ner competition, two children 
from Children's Miracle Network 
come to judge the uarious ban- 
ners made by the sororities. This 
year, Sigma Chi raised $30,000 
for their organization through 
Derby Days. 

Anchor Splash is another big 
euent in the Greek community. 
Euery spring, uarious fraternities 
and sororities compete in swim- 
ming games at the Eppley Recre- 
ation Center pool to win the An- 
chor splash title. Delta Gamma 
holds this euent for their philan- 
thropy, seruice for sight. There 
are uarious actiuities to Anchor- 
splash: biggest splash contest, 
saue a DG, swimming relays, and 
the most popular, synchronized 

Zeta Tau Alpha's philanthropy 
is Breast Cancer. They do seueral 
euents, especially throughout 
Breast Cancer Awareness month, 
that benefit and raise money for 
uarying breast cancer founda- 
tions. The women in this chapter 
spend all of October handing out 
the pink breast cancer aware- 
ness ribbons and pamphlets. The 
chapter also "paints the campus 
pink" one weekend in October 
by decorating parts of campus 
with pink flowers, pink chalk, 
and more. 

Claire Zahaui, junior middle 
school math and science major 
in Zeta Tau Alpha, finds her chap- 
ter's philanthropic euents impor- 
tant for eueryone on campus: 
"Because breast cancer effects 
so many, we make it our goal to 
haue the community aware of all 
the preuentatiue measures." 

The different euents are im- 
portant to chapter moral around 
campus. Fraternities and sorori- 
ties make an effort to support 
each cause, and show up to each 
other's philanthropic euents.

Social euents in the Greel( orga- 
nizations are some of tlie biggest 
euents of tlie year. Not surpris- 
ing, riglit? These organizations 
spend all semester planning the 
perfect social euents to highlight 
their year. These euents consist 
of formals, away weekends, and 
euents planned by the gouern- 
ing councils. 

Formals are once a semester 
for sororities, and part of away 
weekends for fraternities. These 
euents usually take place in uari- 
ous restaurants, clubs, bars, or 
hotels. Girls come in dresses, guys 
where khakis and a tie, and it's 

time to party! Most of the time, 
these euents are held in Wash- 
ington D.C. The uariety of bars 
and clubs downtown prouides 
the perfect uenue for each chap- 
ter's indiuidual euent. There are 
also seueral smaller euents held 
in places around College Park 
throughout the semester. 

Sophie Crook, senior kinesiol- 
ogy major in Delta Gamma, says 
that formals and away week- 
ends are her fauorite euents to 
meet new people: "Whether it 
be my own formal or someone 
else's away weekend, there are 
always new people to meet and 

sometimes you figure out how 
small the world is, if that random 
person knows people you know." 
Fraternities hold away week- 
ends once euery semester. Fra- 
ternities usually go to the beach 
or the mountains for these week- 
ends. They still get to dress up 
too! They haue one euent that 
they all attend which is similar 
to a dance. They also plan fun 
euents for the day, including 
rafting, hiking, or just sitting on 
the beach with some friends. In 
the end, these euents always 
end with some new friends and 
some great stories.

Though there are a number of 
social Greek organizations, the 
Uniuersity of Maryland campus 
contains seueral academic and 
professional fraternities. They 
may not haue houses on Frater- 
nity Rouj or the Graham Cracker, 
houjeuer they are just as Impor- 
tant to the campus' Greek life. 

These academic and profes- 
sional fraternities are tailored 
to a specific major or interest, 
including business, economics, 
engineering, and seruice.

joined a seruice fraternity ouer 
traditional Greek life, Darrin Kish- 
baugh, senior criminology and 
criminal justice double major in 
Alpha Phi Omega, stated that "it 
was a ujin-ujin: hanging out with 
great friends while also doing 
seruice to our community." 

These members still know 
how to haue fun after their hard 
work. All of the organizations 
haue a uariety of social euents 
throughout the year, including 
intramural games, cookouts, 
weekend trips, and retreats. 

Aaron Pagan, a senior finance 
and Operations Management 
double major, is a member of 
Alpha Kappa Psi, a co-ed profes- 
sional business fraternity on 
campus. He proudly boasts that 
"we aren't just a bunch of nerds- 
we haue a blast on the weekend 
and outside the classroom... 
work hard, play hard." 

Those in an academic or pro- 
fessional fraternity will tell you 
that, in reality, there is not much 
difference between a social fra- 
ternity and their own organiza- 
tion. Stephanie Johnson, senior 

double major in finance and sup- 
ply chain management, as well 
as a member of Alpha Kappa Psi, 
states that they also haue the 
same type of euents as social 
organizations; "what differenti- 
ates us are our 6-7 professional 
euents per semester that range 
from resume and interuiew 
workshops to industry speak- 

You can also find many of 
these social and professional or- 
ganizations at euents like Relay 
for Life, Terpthon, and so much 
more. The brothers of each dif- 
ferent professional and aca- 
demic fraternity haue teams to 
almost any philanthropic euent 
on campus. If you look around, 
you will see these folks wearing 
the letters loud and proud; hey, 
they are still Greek!

Greek Life Section Editor 

This year something big 
happened in the Greek com- 
munity: Alpha Xi Delta re- 
turned to the campus after 19 
years. This return now giues 
Uniuersity of Maryland K 
sororities on campus, which 
has not happened for quite 

The fall class of 81 women 
started the year off with a 
strong presence in the com- 
munity. The addition of this 
sorority has made a huge im- 
pact on the campus. Molly 
Morris, senior General Biol- 
ogy major and uice president 
of administratiue affairs, 
finds that "Alpha Xi Delta 
brings a different dimension 

to the 14 sororities already 
here on campus." 

Starting a new colony has 
required a lot of work from 
these women. They are set- 
ting the standards for what 
they want their chapter to 
be, and what they want their 
chapter to say about them. 

Monica Baena, senior kine- 
siology and pre-nursing dou- 
ble major in Alpha Xi Delta, 
decided to join "because we 
could really make the soror- 
ity into our own since it was 
brand new." They haue re- 
ceiued much help from their 
national offices and chapters 
around the area to help them 

Alpha Xi Delta was a big 
player in Sigma Chi's Derby 
Days, and participated in 
many philanthropic euents 
around campus. They came 
in big numbers to many 
euents, to show their sup- 
port for all of the uniuersity 's 
Greek organizations. 

They all decided that they 
needed to create a strong 
presence in the community 
and make a good name for 
themselues early on. They 
also plan to be extremely 
inuolued and spirited in 
all euents around campus, 
whether they are Greek ori- 
ented or not.

Z01Z marked the 100th 
anniuersary of "The Great Fire" 
that destroyed Uniuersity of 
Maryland's campus. This tragic 
euent forced the uniuersity to 
rebuild, to create a neuj identity 
for College Park, and to become 
the community uje see today. 

In 1912, the uniuersity, then 
known as the Maryland 
Agricultural College, was a 
military school for men. Those 
men who had not gone home 
for Thanksgiuing were enjoying 
a dinner dance with their dates 
when the fire started. 

The fire burned the Barracks 
and the Administration 
building, the two largest and 
most important parts of the 
Maryland Agricultural College. 
The Barracks housed all 269 
students, plus a dining hall, 
kitchen, chapel, and library. 
The Administration building 


held offices and classrooms, 
according to Uniuersity of 
Maryland Archiuist Anne S. K. 

personal possessions, campus 
records mere incinerated, and 
college officials had to scramble 
to prouide for the resumption 
of operation [at the college]," 
Turkos said. 

The administration faced a 
daunting task: the damage was 
seuere and insurance ujould 
not couer the costs to rebuild, 
but they needed to continue 
teaching. The school reopened 
six days later and students 
boarded ujith families in 
surrounding areas until Caluert 
Hall dormitory opened in 1914. 
In the aftermath of the fire, 
alumni, faculty and state 
leaders decided to redefine 
the college's purpose. The 
state took ouer, renaming it 
the Maryland State College of 

Agriculture. The college retired 
its military background, and 
ujomen enrolled for the first 
time. Campus was then rebuilt 
using a colony of buildings 
instead of one main structure. 

In order to commemorate this 
significant euent in Maryland's 
history, Uniuersity Archiues 
worked with the Department 
of Facilities Planning to create 
an on-site exhibit for students. 
On Wednesday, Nouember 28 
through Friday, Nouember 
30, signs with photos and 
information about the fire were 
posted on Morrill Quad. The 
departments also outlined the 
foundations of the buildings 
that were burned. 

Uniuersity Archiues also 
updated their website about 
the fire, created a uideo and 
liue-tweeted the euents of 
the fire the night it happened. 
Uniuersity President Wallace 
Loh sent out an email to 

notifying the community of 
the anniuersary and create 
buzz about the euent. 

"The fire is a defining 
moment in Uniuersity of 
Maryland history," explained 
Turkos. "Had the fire not 
occurred, would we haue 
as academically strong and 
uibrant an institution as we do 

Much of Turkos' job is 
dedicated to collecting and 
filing information about 
the fire. From first-hand 
accounts to newspaper and 
yearbook stories about it as 
well as photographs, Turkos 
has acquired a great deal of 
knowledge about The Great 
Fire. She emphasizes the 
importance of reflecting on 
euents such as this one and 
recognizing the great impact 
they haue on the uniuersity 
community - not only then, but 
still today.

Managing Editor 

Maryland sports fans are icnoiun for being some of the rowdiest in the country. We are often ranked high 
on lists of the rudest or most obnoxious sports fans. But that just means we loue our Terps and we will support 
them no matter what. With eight men's teams and 1 women's teams, there are plenty of sports to chose from. 

Maryland athletics has taken quite a toll in the past year, so we needed something to look forward to. 
Seuen sports programs -- men's and women's swimming, men's tennis, women's water polo, acrobatics and 
tumbling, cross country, and indoor track -- were cut to saue the uniuersity money. One program, men's out- 
door track and field, was able to fundraise enough money to support themselues. 

Maryland sports fans still had plenty of successful teams to support, despite these cuts. The women's 
basketball team won the ACC championship, and both lacrosse teams were successful in NCAA tournaments. 
The women's lacrosse team were semifinalists and the men were finalists. Defending NCAA champions, the 
field hockey team headed into the ACC tournament with a winning record, as well as men's and women's soc- 
cer. Recent seasons haue surely brought many reasons for fans to be proud of their Terps and look forward to 
the future of Maryland athletics. 








A ^ 







When Randy Edsall addressed the 
media before his Terrapins football 
team began its season this fall, he 
preached optimism. 

He'd just lost his starting quarter- 
back, CJ. Brown, for the season to 
a torn ACL. He was coming off a Z-10 
season in his first go-round in College 
Park. He'd seen a mass exodus of play- 
ers from his program. 

But to him, none of that mattered. 

He'd spent an offseason recruiting 
his players. He had two new coordina- 
tors. The Terps had bought in. 

"I want all of our players to haue 
a chip on their shoulder because I do," 
Edsall said at the team's media day. 
"You hope that your players reflect 
your desire, attitude and determina- 
tion. I want our guys to understand 
that this is a whole new year." 

Outside expectations were tem- 
pered for the Terps, but Edsall still ex- 
pected the most from his squad. 

But euen he couldn't haue expected 
the luck that would befall the Terps, 
especially their quarterbacks. Neuer 
could he haue imagined that he would 
lose four quarterbacks to season-end- 
ing injuries. Neuer could he haue imag- 
ined starting a freshman linebacker 
slated to redshirt for the season's final 
four games. 

"We're going to find a way to put a 

Athletics Editor 

plan together to giue us a chance to go 
into the game and win," offensiue co- 
ordinator Mike Locksley said. "We may 
haue to haue a few guys step up, may- 
be take a little more on their plate, but 
we're going to giue ourselues a chance, 
we're going to put a plan together that 
best fits whoeuer our starter is at quar- 
terback and we need to go and execute 

Freshman quarterback Perry Hills, 
the Terps' opening day starter, led the 
team to a U-l record in his first six starts, 
getting better as the season went on. 
When a torn ACL ended his season on 
Oct. 20 against N.C. State in his seu- 
enth start, the Pittsburgh natiue had 
completed 57A percent of his passes 
for 1,336 yards, eight touchdowns and 
seuen interceptions. 

Freshman wide receiuer Stefon Diggs 
emerged as an electric playmaker for 
the Terps in 2012. Eliciting gasps from 
the crowd euery time he touched the 
ball, the Good Counsel product caught 
43 passes for 721 yards and six touch- 
downs. He also returned a kickoff 100 
yards for a touchdown in a 27-20 win 
ouer Virginia on Oct. 13. 

The Terps also boasted an improued 
defense throughout 2012. A much-ma- 
ligned unit in 2011, the defense was one 
of the top against the run in the nation. 
With a line led by senior defensiue ends 

Joe Vellano and A.J. Francis, the Terps 
allowed were second in the ACC against 
the run and second in the conference in 
total defense. 

After Hills' injury, though, the Terps' 
fortunes seemed to change for the 
worse. The Terps fell 20-18 to N.C. State 
after kicker Brad Craddock missed a po- 
tential game-winning field goal. Boston 
College edged the Terps, 20-17, the fol- 
lowing week when freshman quarter- 
back Caleb Rowe tore his ACL. 

Then, after linebacker Demetrius 
Hartsfield's torn ACL, the injuries on de- 
fense became too much. Georgia Tech's 
option offense ouerwhelmed the Terps 
and Clemson blew out the Terps 49-10. 

But despite finishing 2012 with a 4-8 
record, the future of Terps football is 
bright, with Diggs' talent and the return 
of an abundance of quarterbacks. 

"You can see a team that is out there 
competing for 60 minutes," Edsall said 
before the Terps played Florida State. 
"These are just lessons in life for these 
young men. We haue gone through 
some things this year that you normally 
do not go through in football, but that 
is how life is. Sometimes someone in 
your family has a health issue or goes 
through general trials and tribulations, 
but what you haue to understand is you 
are going to haue tough times in your 
life, in school, and in football.

In Missy Meharg's Z9 years at the 
helm of the Terrapins field hockey 
team, she's ouerseen a thriuing dy- 
nasty with success that's nearly im- 
possible to match. 

The numbers speak for them- 
selues: 23 NCAA tournament ap- 
pearances, 19 final fours and seuen 
national championships. 

This season, though, the Terps 
couldn't notch the eighth title of 
Meharg's tenure and ninth ouerall 
in the history of the program, de- 
spite aduancing to its fifth straight 
final four. The Terps fell in ouertime, 
3-Z, to Princeton on Nou. 16. 

"I luas so proud of them for play- 
ing in the final of the Atlantic Coast 
Conference and certainly getting 
to the final four," Meharg said. "I'm 
uery proud of the ujay uje played. 
We played championship leuel — 
good enough to be national cham- 
pions at the time of year uje could 
haue been. That's what I ujill re- 
member about this year." 

Despite losing one game short of 
the national championship, Meharg 
expects the Terps to be right back 
in the hunt next season. After all, it 

Athletics Editor 

is the premier collegiate program in 
field hockey. 

"I belieue that Maryland is able 
to recruit the best players, the best 
student-athletes in college field 
hockey," Meharg said. "We haue a 
great staff so I'd like to think that ir- 
relatiue of what the sayers say, that 
we can win championships." 

The Terps, though, will still be 
mouing on without some of their 
main contributors. They graduated 
eight seniors, including midfielder 
Megan Frazer, who was third on 
the team with Z8 points (10 goals, 
eight assists). Also leauing with her 
are midfielder Janessa Pope, who 
played in all 24 games and recorded 
17 points, and forward Lindsey Puck- 
ett, who played in 20 games and 
scored three goals. 

The senior class finished its four 
years in the program with a record 
of 83-12, four final four appearances 
and two national championships. 

The remaining Terps are still a tal- 
ented bunch. The Terps' top scorer, 
forward Jill Witmer, will be a senior, 
while their second-leading scorer, 
forward Katie Gerzabek, will be a 

junior. Witmer had 40 points on 19 
goals and 10 assists, while Gerzabeck 
had 10 goals and 10 assists, despite 
missing three games to play at the 
Junior Pan Am Games. 

Along with the Terps' fourth- and 
fifth-leading scorers from a year ago 
— defenders Sarah Sprink and Aii 
McEuoy — the returning core packs a 
powerful punch. Plus, Meharg knows 
that any time spent playing with the 
graduating seniors will be a bonus 
for the future. 

"Their teammates haue played 
with them and around them and un- 
der them for three years, two years, 
one year," Meharg said. "In that re- 
gard, they haue a legacy." 

Meharg said she still feels numb 
to the final four loss to Princeton, 
which came on a penalty stroke in 
ouertime. In fact, due to the sud- 
den nature of it, she still feels like 
the Terps are battling the Tigers on 
that Nouember euening. But when 
the new season comes around, the 
Terps' goals will be right where they 
left them. 

"Once you win," Meharg said, "you 
always want to win."

The Terrapins women's cross coun- 
try team used all of its depth through- 
out the Z01Z season to put it in the po- 
sition to be euen more successful next 

With consistent improuements 
during the season, euery race was an 
opportunity to see who the next run- 
ner to step up would be. Would it be a 
steady senior or an upstart freshman? 

"The team was able to step up this 
year in seueral key competitions," 
coach Andrew Valmon said. "Our top 
fiue scorers were constantly chang- 
ing, which shows the depth of the 
group. There were always athletes 
stepping up when needed throughout 
the duration of the season. The major- 
ity of the team also set new personal 
best performances." 

First, it was senior Anna Roth win- 
ning the season-opening UMES Lid- 
Lifter meet on Sept. 1. The Terps swept 
the top seuen spots in the race, led by 
Roth's time of 19:13 on the fiue-kilome- 
ter course. There was some premo- 
nition to how the youth would per- 
form, as a trio of Jackie Lazzaro, Emily 
VandeWater and Catherine Sheffo fin- 
ished second, third and fourth, respec- 

Athletics Editor 

Two weeks later, it would be another 
runner, sophomore Myah Hicks, pacing 
the Terps to a fourth-place finish at the 
Nauy Salty Dog Inuitational. Hicks fin- 
ished the six-kilometer course in Z3:01 
to finish 10th, while Roth was close be- 
hind in 18th place. 

The Terps faced their biggest chal- 
lenge of the year Sept. Z8 when they 
traueled to Lehigh, Pa., for the Paul 
Short Inuitational and ran in a field 
that included a number of nationally 
ranked teams. Hicks again paced the 
Terps, as the team's top fiue finishers 
all posted times within one minute of 
each other. Ouerall, the Terps finished 
Z9th out of the 70 teams in the meet. 

"Ouerall, I'm pleased with how things 
went today," Valmon said in a release 
after the meet. "The team continues to 
improue each meet as they prepare for 
peak performances at the ACC Champi- 

Junior Becky Yep became the Terps' 
third different top finisher of the year 
Oct. 1Z when she won the Blue & Gold 
Inuitational in Newark, Del. She won 
the race by 18 seconds, setting a new 
personal best in the process, and the 
Terps finished second behind host Dela- 
ware. Roth finished seuenth ouerall. 

Yep and Roth again went one-two for 
the Terps at ACC Championships the next 
weekend in Blacksburg, Va. Competing 
in a field against some of the NCAA's top 
teams, including No. 1 Florida State, the 
Terps finished 11th in the IZ-team field. 

Yep made a late season debut for the 
Terps, not racing until the Paul Short 
Inuitational. But when she came back, 
she was the Terps' best runner. After 
her showing at ACC Championships, the 
Ellicott City natiue finished 37th at the 
NCAA Mid-Atlantic Regional on Nou. 9, 
helping the Terps to a 13th place finish 
in a field of 31 teams. 

In all, the season giues the Terps 
plenty of optimism for next year. De- 
spite losing Roth, the Terps return Yep 
and the underclassmen who improued 
through the duration of the fall. 

"We will look to build on this year's 
performances heading into next year," 
Valmon said. "We are only losing two se- 
niors and hope that the underclassmen 
will step up to fill these shoes. Many of 
our athletes haue shown promise in this 
year's competition, demonstrating that 
they are ready to take these perfor- 
mances to the next leuel. Our ultimate 
goal is for eueryone to exceed expecta-

For the 


The Terrapins uolleyball team's 
season could easily be diuided three 

There was the hot 9-A start when 
the Terps defeated Clemson for the 
first time in coach Tim Horsmon's 
fiue-year tenure. Then, the team was 
befallen by injuries and endured a 
stretch where it dropped nine of 12 
matches. But the Terps closed by win- 
ning fiue of their final seuen. 

While the Terps finished 17-19 ouerall 
with an 8-12 mark in the ACC, Horsmon 
and his players still saw it as a sign. 

"We're excited for it," Horsmon said. 
"We only had two seniors on our team. 
... We're returning the majority of 
our offense and defense. Still a lot of 
young players but I think this year's 
going to be big for us." 

Senior setter Remy McBain uiewed 
the year as things finally clicking 
under Horsmon. McBain, who was a 
member of Horsmon's first recruiting 
class, lasted through 2011's 15-match 
losing streak and a 60-69 career record 
in College Park. But despite the hard- 
ships, she neuer once thought about 
transferring or leauing the team. 

Athletics Editor 

"I was happy with it," McBain said. 
"There's always room for improue- 
ment, but I don't want to liue my life 
in regrets. So I was happy with my per- 
formance, and I just look to continue to 
get better throughout my career." 

The Terps were buoyed by the per- 
formance of outside hitter Ashleigh 
Crutcher, who was an AII-ACC and hon- 
orable mention All-America selection. 
She led the team with kUl kills, which 
ranks as the sixth-highest total in 
school history, and her mark ouer 3.79 
kills per set ranked third in the ACC. 

Middle blocker Adreene Elliott start- 
ed all 32 matches and played in all 117 
sets for the Terps and led the team in 
blocks. Elliott and Crutcher, both of 
whom just completed their sophomore 
campaigns giue Horsmon a talented 
nucleus mouing forward. 

"A year later, they're grown up," Hor- 
smon said. "They'ue made some moues 
forward. Those things in combination, 
we're a better team." 

But health still remained the decid- 
ing factor in the Terps' season. Out- 
side hitter Mary Cushman missed eight 
matches due to a concussion. Outside 

hitter Kamrin Gold sprained her ankle. 
Emily Fraik, Kaitlyn King and Caitlin Ad- 
ams all missed time, too. 

It was more of the same from the 
Terps' dismal 2011 campaign, when they 
were also besieged by injury. 

But at the end of the year, the Terps 
rallied. Outside of stumbling at Florida 
State and Miami, the Terps dropped 
fiue sets in their final fiue wins. When 
healthy, they showed how they are ca- 
pable of performing. 

"I think we haue a great set of girls 
that are still here," McBain said. "There's 
only two of us leauing. They haue a 
great group of girls. Great leaders, and 
I'm so excited to see where they're go- 
ing to go next year and the years after 
that because I know it's going to be 

The Terps haue yet to make the post- 
season under Horsmon, but with the fi- 
nal performances of 2012, there's reason 
for optimism in 2013. 

"We're excited about the moue we can 
make going into next year," Horsmon 
said. "I think the foundation is there 
now. The talent's there. Our kids know 
that they can win big matches now."

The Terrapins men's soccer team's 
201Z season marked a return to the Col- 
lege Cup for the first time since 2008, 
but it fell short in its quest for its first 
national championship since then. 

The Terps fell in penalty kicks, A-3, to 
regional riual Georgetown in the Col- 
lege Cup semifinals Dec. 7 in Hoouer, 
Ala., after a spirited comeback. They 
fell behind both 3-1 and A-2 before ral- 
lying for tujo late goals to send the 
game to ouertime and, ultimately, 
penalty kicks. 

It was a game indicatiue of the 
team's performance all season long. 

"In our Maryland fashion, we put 
some things together and put it right 
and really pushed, not only to get 
back, but get the winner," coach Sasho 
Cirouski said. "We came up a little emp- 

While the Terps did fall short in the 
pursuit of their biggest preseason goal 
— the national championship — they 
still came away with the ACC regular 
season title and the ACC tournament 
championship. They enjoyed one of 
the best seasons in program history 
and finished with a 20-1-3 record. 

The Terps also enjoyed a stellar of- 
fensiue season from forward Patrick 
Mullins. The New Orleans natiue fin- 
ished with 44 points on 17 goals and 
10 assists. The points were the sixth- 

Athletics Editor 

most euer in a season for a Terp, while 
the goals and assists ranked sixth and 
eighth on the single-season records 
lists. And in the key moments, Mullins 
seemed to always be there, notching 
seuen game-winning goals. 

"I'm just so comfortable with these 
guys and playing with these guys," 
Mullins said in Nouember. "I know 
where all my teammates are going to 
be on the field and I think that helps 
improue my game and they help me so 
much along the way." 

The Terps also bid farewell to three 
seniors that were lynchpins of the 
Terps' success ouer their careers. Mid- 
fielder John Stertzer and defenders 
Taylor Kemp and London Woodberry 
exit the program hauing won 68 games 
and making at least the NCAA tourna- 
ment third round euery year. 

Stertzer scored 21 goals in the past 
two seasons and helped connect the 
offense to the defense. Kemp was a 
starter from Day 1 with the Terps and 
battled injuries in 2012, euen flying to 
Germany in October for a sports her- 
nia procedure so he could play in the 
postseason. Woodberry became one of 
the conference's top center backs and 
scored three clutch goals during the 

"I would haue done anything to get 
back on the field," Kemp said in early 

Nouember. "All I wanted to do was play. 
It's my senior year and I loue this team 
and I belieue in this team. I wanted to 
do euerything I could to help this team." 

While the Terps do graduate three 
key elements of their team, they re- 
turn a great deal of young — and now 
experienced — talent. Forward Schillo 
Tshuma and defenders Mikey Ambrose 
and Dakota Edwards started almost eu- 
ery game as freshmen. Tshuma finished 
second on the team with 10 goals, in- 
cluding two in the loss to Georgetown. 

Plus, freshman forward Christiano 
Francois prouided a spark off the bench 
with fiue goals. Combining the youth 
with the returning experience of for- 
ward Jake Pace, defender Jordan Cyrus 
and midfielder Helge Leikuang, the 
Terps are in position to make another 
run in 2013. 

But for 2012, the Terps fell short. It 
was a heartbreaking end to a season 
that started with a 16-game unbeaten 
streak and juggernaut offense. The 
Terps had returned to the College Cup, 
but they still left empty-handed. 

"We had trained many days in the hot 
summer for this exact moment, to come 
out and be fit," Mullins said. "I thought 
we did. I still thought we pushed on in 
ouertime and had some decent chances 
and looks at goal. It just wasn't meant 
to be."

The turnouer on paper was obui- 
ous as the Terps women's soccer team 
entered its 201Z season. 

Coach Brian PensJty had departed 
for Tennessee. Eleuen seniors left Col- 
lege Park to moue on with their ca- 
reers and hues. After an up-and-doujn 
2011, it seemed like the Terps would 
need time to adjust to a regime and 
new program. 

Not much changed on the field, 

One of the top teams in the nation 
the preuious three years, the Terps 
picked up right where they'd left off 
and finished with a 14-7-2 record, ACC 
Championship game appearance and 
NCAA Tournament second round exit. 

The success started at the top with 
new coach Jonathan Morgan. A long- 
time assistant under Pensky, Morgan 
kept an element of stability to a team 
that was still returning some key on- 
field pieces like forward Hayley Brock, 
who led the team in goals (13) and 
points (32). 

"The continuity of our staff and our 
players' continued commitment to be- 
ing great will allow Maryland women's 
soccer to continue to moue forward in 
its pursuit of reaching excellence in 

Athletics Editor 

women's college soccer," Morgan said 
in a release when he was hired. 

Despite the new cast, the Terps picked 
up on the success of the 2011 campaign, 
when they made it to the top-16 in the 
NCAA Tournament. The Terps started 
A-1-1, including a win against Alabama 
in Tuscaloosa, Ala. 

But there were stumbles. The Terps 
fell at home, 1-0, to an unheralded 
Fordham team Sept. 9 despite out- 
shooting the Rams, 19-5. Just one of 
those fiue Fordham shots made its way 
by goalkeeper Rachelle Beanlands and 
into the back of the net. 

On the cusp of ACC play, it cast a pall 
ouer the start of the season. The ACC, 
after all, checks in as one of the top 
conferences in all of collegiate wom- 
en's soccer. 

The Terps got off to a torrid start in 
ACC play, winning six of their first eight 
games including the program's third- 
euer win ouer North Carolina on Sept. 
13 and a late come-from-behind uictory 
ouer Virginia on Sept. 27. The Terps were 
climbing in the rankings and poised for 
a deep postseason run. 

In addition to Brock's scoring, the 
Terps receiued a breakout season from 
midfielder Becky Kaplan, who finished 

tied for first in assists (six) and second 
in goals (12) and points (30). Midfielder 
Oliuia Wagner anchored the team in 
the midfield and played the third-most 
minutes behind defensiue stopper Do- 
menica Hodak. 

All the while, Morgan was integrating 
freshmen like midfielder Ashley Spiuey 
(13 points), forward Gabby Galanti (nine 
points) and defender Shannon Collins 
into the rotation. Collins wound up 
playing a team-high 1,990 minutes in 
the back, helping fill a uoid left when 
senior defender Megan Gibbons tore 
her ACL early in the season. 

In the end, though, the Terps fell in 
the postseason in heartbreaking fash- 
ion Nou. 16. Against Denuer in the sec- 
ond round in Stanford, Calif., the Terps 
built a 2-0 lead in the first 60 minutes. 
But the Pioneers rallied thanks to three 
goals from Nicholette Digiacomo, in- 
cluding tallies in the 90th and 94th min- 
utes to send the Terps back to College 

"My heart goes out to [the seniors] 
and the entire team because I feel they 
deserued better than what they got to- 
night," Morgan said in a release after 
the loss. "Unfortunately, life and sport 
can be cruel."

Early expectations for the Ter- 
rapins gymnastics team were high. 
After tujo consecutiue third- 
place finishes in the East Atlan- 
tic Gymnastics League, the Terps 
were picked to finish second in the 
eight-team conference comprising 
of eight schools located between 
North Carolina and New Hampshire. 

And three weeks into their sea- 
son, the Terps haue liued up to that 

The Terps tied No. 22 N.C. State — 
the lone team picked aboue them 
in the EAGL — on Jan. 11 by a score 
of 199.000-199.000 in their season 
opener. Three days later, the Terps 
made their debut in the Gymlnfo 
Top 29 poll, jumping to No. 17. 

"What a great way to start the 
season," coach Brett Nelligan said in 
a release after the N.C. State meet. 
'Tm really proud of the team. They 
came out tonight and were really 
determined to make a statement 
about where we feel we belong in 
the conference. Putting up a perfor- 
mance like this on the road, against 
a strong team, in front of a tough 

Athletics Editor 

crowd is a great sign." 

The Terps haue been led early 
in the season by junior Katy Dodds. 
She set a new program record on 
uault with a score of 9.979, includ- 
ing receiuing one perfect 10.00 from 
the judges. The team tied the seu- 
enth highest score in history with an 
ouerall mark of 49.129. 

"Katy's uault was as close to per- 
fect as you can get," Nelligan said. 
"It was incredible." 

It was the signal of a hot start for 
the Terps. Just more than a week 
after the N.C. State meet, the Terps 
swept conference foe Pittsburgh, 
Cornell and Temple in Pittsburgh to 
put their record at 3-0-1 early in the 

And like the week before, the Terps 
dominated on uault. Dodds and se- 
nior Ally Krikorian combined to lead 
the Terps to a program-record score 
in the euent. Dodds and Krikorian 
each posted scores of 9.900, and the 
Terps were ranked eight nationally 
on uault as of Jan. 14. 

Their performances were boosted 
by freshman Kathy Tang, who had 

the team-high score in the all-around 
in the first two meets. She was rec- 
ognized as EAGL Rookie of the Week 
after the N.C. State meet and also led 
the team on the uneuen bars in Pitts- 

"I'm so proud of this team," Nel- 
ligan said. "To start on the road two 
straight weeks and come out and do 
what they'ue done is incredible. This 
is a special group." 

As the season moues forward, the 
Terps haue plenty of steady perform- 
ers to boost them. The Terps returned 
three All-EAGL first team members 
from last year. Krikorian was the 
gold medalist in the floor exercise at 
the EAGL championships last season. 
Combined with the youth of Tang, 
Bailey Philbin, Haley Jones and Alex 
Zimmerman, the Terps should haue a 
potent combination for a deep con- 
ference run. 

"I think we can build off of the 
success of last year's season and see 
if we can push it euen further this 
year," Nelligan said before the sea- 
son started.

After becoming the first Terrapins golfer to capture an indi- 
uidual title in almost two years in September, junior Sean Bosdosh 
rode a waue of success through the fall golf season and has him- 
self poised for the spring season and ACC Championships. 

Bosdosh won the VCU Shootout in September and followed it 
up with a win at the Firestone Inuitational in Akron, Ohio. The last 
Terp to win an indiuidual title was Jason Popeck in October 2010. 

"Sean's been nothing short of spectacular," head coach Jason 
Rodenhauer said in a release in late October. "He's been great, 

he's been consistent. He's on his way to being an all-conference player this year." 

Bosdosh's scoring auerage of 71.29 was tops on the Terps and ranked second in the 
ACC, and he recorded top-10 finishes in four of the Terps' fiue fall tournaments. All 
this has come after Bosdosh won the 91st Maryland Open last summer and fin- 
ished second in the Maryland State Amateur Championship. The Clarksburg natiue 
led the Terps in scoring auerage last spring, too, with a mark of 74.13. 

The indiuidual triumphs of Bosdosh also propelled the Terps forward to some of 
their best finishes of the year. The team finished fourth at the VCU Shootout and tied for seuenth at the 
Firestone Inuitational. The Terps placed three golfers in the top 20 at the Wolfpack Intercollegiate in mid- 
October to notch a fifth place finish. 

By the end of the season at the Bridgestone Golf Collegiate, the Terps had shown Rodenhauer steps 
toward a successful spring season. 

The Terps receiued a boost from the youth in the team in freshmen Tom Harris and Andrew McCain. Har- 
ris recorded two top-10 finishes on the fall. He shot a 69 in the final round at the VCU Shootout to finish in 
a tie for eighth place. At Bridgestone Golf Collegiate, his 3-ouer 219 tied him for 10th. 

McCain's best finish came at the Wolfpack Intercollegiate, when he finished tied for 16th. Through the 
first four tournaments of the fall, McCain's score decreased from weekend to weekend. 

"I'm really pleased with the way the freshmen haue turned it on here," 
Rodenhauer said. "If we can get some help in the back of the line 
up, the spring should be pretty good for us." 

The Terps are looking to build on a 10th place finish 
at last season's ACC Championships, where the Terps 
peaked and played some of their best golf of the sea- 
son. With the improuement present throughout the fall 
in indiuidual performances could be poised for an euen 
better 2013.

When the Terrapins women's golf team wrapped up its fall season in late October, 
it was in typical fashion. 

Senior Christine Shimel led the Terps to a fourth place finish at the Palmetto Intercollegiate in Kiawah Island, 
S.C., by shooting 1-ouer par to finish tied for second place indiuidually?. It was another top-10 finish for her and 
another top-fiue finish for the Terps. 

"I think it was a strong fall season for the women's team," director of intercollegiate golf Jason Rodenhauer 
said in an October release. "Christine Shimel played great this weekend and had a great fall. She was certainly 
the most consistent player throughout the season. A tie for fourth is a good finish for us." 

Shimel was key for the Terps all fall long. A 2010 AII-ACC selection, she led the team in scoring auerage with 
a mark of 73.70, which also ranked third in the ACC. After a slow start at the Cougar Classic where 
^^ she finished tied for 48th place, Shimel rebounded to notch a fourth-place finish at the Cardi- 
nal Cup, a seuenth-place finish at the Starmount Classic in October and then the [second- 
place] finish at Palmetto. 

The Terps started the season slowly with a 21st place finish at the Cougar Classic on Sept. 
11. Junior Emily Gimpel and sophomore Juliet Vongphoumy were their next finishers. But the 
team rebounded in Simpsonuille, Ky., one week later with a fifth place at the Cardinal Cup. 
Shimel shot a 69 in the final round to moue from a tie for 18th place to finish in a tie for fourth place. As a 
team, the Terps finished 11 strokes back of champion Louisuille. Behind Shimel, Vongphoumy, a 2012 AII-ACC se- 
lection, rebounded from the weekend before to finish in a tie for 11th and Gimpel logged a top-30 finish, check- 
ing in at tied for 27th. 

In the Starmount Classic in early October, the Terps got their usual contributions from Vongphoumy (third 
place) and Shimel (tied for seuenth place), but one of their freshmen also stepped up for her best performance. 
Heidi Baek finished tied for ninth in the tournament, her best showing in her first year in College Park as the 
Terps finished second. 

The performances continued through the Terps' win in the Lady Pirate Intercollegiate on Oct. 9 and into 
the final Palmetto Intercollegiate on Oct. 29. After Shimel's second place finish, Vongphoumy 
finished tied for 18th, and Baek finished in the top 30 with a score of 9-ouer to 
wrap up the fall of her freshman season. 

"Heidi had her best tournament so far," Rodenhauer said. "It was 
good to see her play well. She's capable of being a great player for 

With Vongphoumy finishing seuenth in the ACC in scoring au- 
erage (74.08) and Gimpel finishing 19th in the same statistic, the 
Terps haue some prouen talent heading into the spring season. 
Now, it's Just building depth and meshing euerything together. 





Entering the 201Z Terrapins men's 
track and field season, coacli An- 
drew Valmon didn't euen Itnoiu if he 
ujould haue a team in 2013. 

Budget ujoes luithin the athletic 
department put the team on the 
chopping block, along with seuen 
other sports in a report released by 
the uniuersity in Nouember 2011. 

The Terps, though, were able to 
come together and raise enough 
funds to keep the program aliue. 
When the calendar turned to July 1, 
2012, the team was saued, and now, 
it begins its life in a new era. 

"We are looking forward to a com- 
petitiue season and leauing a last- 
ing legacy at the uniuersity," Val- 
mon said. "The history of Maryland 
men's track is strong, and we knew 
from the start that we were going 
to do anything possible to keep the 
program intact." 

There are some changes, though. 
The financial constraints haue 
forced the team to haue to deal 
with limited scholarship funds and 
pare down its roster because of the 
smaller number of athletes that 
can be supported. At first glance, 

Athletics Editor 

the Terps could appear to be short- 
handed, but for Valmon, it's simply a 
change for his athletes to ouercome. 

"The expectations and standards 
haue to be higher for our men's team 
based on the new structure of the 
program," Valmon said. "We will be 
asking more from each of the men 
on our roster and haue been upfront 
with the guys about stepping up 
when needed. We haue extended 
our base training to allow for peak 
performances during the outdoor 

The Terps return senior Jon Hill, 
who was a USTFCCCA(my gosh, that's 
an obnoxious acronym) Second 
Team Ail-American last spring, in 
the high jump, an euent in which he 
placed ninth m at the NCAA Champi- 
onships last season. Also in the field 
euents, the Terps haue junior Josh 
Haghighi and sophomore Pat Cole 

Last season, Haghighi placed 
seuenth in the shot put at the ACC 
Championships while notching a 
16th place in the discus at the same 
meet. Cole placed 13th in the shot 
put at the conference champion- 

ships while also placing eighth in the 
hammer throw. 

Valmon said he is looking to se- 
niors Shawn and Dareem Dauid in 
the sprints. Both ran on shorter relay 
teams in 2012, while Dareem Dauid 
ran the 200 meters indiuidually dur- 
ing the season and Shawn Dauid was 
in the 400 meters and placed 11th at 
ACC Championships. Sophomore Ter- 
rence Maliff, the lone hurdler listed 
on the roster, was seuenth in the 
400 meter hurdles in the conference 

Seniors Ryan Chelton and Mama- 
dou Niang will participate in the mid- 
dle distance races this year in their 
first years of outdoor track compe- 
tition for the Terps. And finally, Val- 
mon looks to senior Brian Faherty, 
junior Sean O'Leary and sophomore 
Kikanae Punyua for the distance 

Despite all of the tumult and un- 
certainty surrounding the program 
during the past year, Valmon has his 
mindset for this year's team in mind. 

"This year," Valmon said, "I am ex- 
pecting big performances across the

When the Terrapins luomen's 
track and field team's outdoor sea- 
son begins in earnest, it luon't come 
after a long layoff or offseason. 

No. the athletes luill be transi- 
tioning straight from their indoor 
track and field season into the out- 
door track and field season, and 
there ujon't be a chance for any of 
them to lose their edge. 

"Our athletes compete year 
round." coach Andreiu Valmon said. 
"They begin training in the fall and 
compete from January through 
June. There is not a long transition 
betiueen indoor and outdoor track 
so the competitiue fire stays lit 
throughout the year." 

At the end of January, multiple 
Terps had already put together a 
number of notable performances, 
and those are expected to continue 
throughout the season and into the

placed second behind Young in the

of each class on it. 

"We don't hold anyone back, so 
our young athletes are held to the 
same standards as our upperclass- 
men," Valmon said. "Eueryone on 
this team is expected to contribute 
from the start. We start this mental-

things each time they enter compe- 

The Terps haue also receiued sue 
cess this season from sophomore 
Amber Meluille, luho notched the 
fifth best mark in the high jump in 
program history in the season open- 
ing Nittany Lion Inuitational on Jan. 
11 and 12. Sophomore Myah Hicks has 
been the Terps' best runner in the 
800 meters so far as ujell. 

The Terps also return the high jump 
runner-up at ACC Championships 
in Amina Smith, giuing the Terps a 
strong stable of jumpers to go ujtth 
their usual strength in the jumps. 

In all, it giues the Terps another 
strong core to depend on mouing 
forujard through the rest of the in- 
door season and into the outdoor 

"We haue a great group of young 
athletes ujho are eager to get to the 
next leuel," Valmon said. "Our upper- 
classmen are expected to lead and 
set the example, but in the end, the 
full team ujill come together to prod- 
uct results." 



The Terrapins ujomen's tennis 
team may be going through a pe- 
riod of transition under new coach 
Daria Panoua, but it doesn't change 
anything that Panoua has worked 
toward throughout her entire career. 
A two-time All-American, three- 
time all-conference selection in the 
Pac-10 and 2003 Pac-10 Player of the 
Year at Oregon in the early ZOOOs, 
Panoua wants the success of her 
playing days to translate to the side- 
line in College Park. 

"I'm uery competitiue, and I want 
to win," Panoua said. "I can't win as a 
player anymore, so I want to win as 
a coach." 

It won't be easy, though. 
The Terps' roster has been in a con- 
stant state of flux for Panoua, and the 
team went through the fall season 
with just four players. To preuent her 
players from playing against each 
other too often, Panoua encouraged 
them to schedule matches against 
local junior players to add some ua- 
riety to their daily grind. 

"I think it was a little ouerwhelm- 
ing at the beginning, not hauing 
enough players and just a first-year 

Athletics Editor 

coach, but I think after the initial 
shock for the first couple weeks, it's 
been great," Panoua said. "The team 
is amazing. Eueryone here is uery sup- 
portiue in the athletic department. 
It's one of the best enuironments I'ue 
euer been in." 

Despite hauing a small roster, Pano- 
ua has gotten through to her play- 
ers. They see her pedigree and know 
what she accomplished in the college 
game and recognize her style. 

"I'm from Europe, she's from Eu- 
rope," Vroni Van Berlo said. "It's kind 
of more similar for me than hauing an 
American coach before." 

Panoua came to College Park af- 
ter flue years as an assistant at Min- 
nesota. There, she earned a master's 
degree in sports management and 
helped the Golden Gophers to their 
first NCAA Tournament in nine years 
after the 2012 season. 

The Moscow, Russia, natiue left Or- 
egon as the winningest player in pro- 
gram history with 94 wins, and set a 
single-season record of 32 in 2003 and 
2004. All the while, she was picking 
up tips from an intense coach in Or- 
egon and a more mild-mannered boss 

in Minnesota. 

"I think it made me more in the 
middle," Panoua said. "I'm uery appre- 
ciatiue that I got to experience both 
types of coaches." 

The lone senior on the roster, Pano- 
ua said she'll be counting on Van Berlo 
throughout the spring to help lead 
an influx of new talent and in the de- 
uelopment of a deep roster. Panoua 
inherited four players when she took 
ouer in the fall, but in one year, she 
knows the roster will be ouerhauled. 

When some coaches take ouer 
teams, the roster is bogged down by 
the players they recruited, making 
for a difficult transition. But the size 
of the Terps allows Panoua to get all 
of her players on the same page and 
work toward putting together a com- 
petitiue squad. 

"You hear a lot of coaches talk 
about not hauing their own team, that 
someone else recruited the players," 
Panoua said. "Here, I was lucky with 
the players I haue right now, but I'm 
still going to recruit. I'm going to haue 
a brand new team basically in a year. 
I'm going to haue my own team in a 
year, so that's different." 



At first glance, it's easy to see eu- 
erytliing Jolin Szefc won't haue in 
his first year talcing ouer the Terra- 
pins baseball team. 

The Terps are integrating an 
entirely neiu coaching staff. They 
lost tujo of their top three starting 
pitchers to graduation. They gradu- 
ated a four-year starter at short- 
stop. A top relieuer left early after 
being drafted. 

But looking past who isn't there, 
Szefc inherits a team in a possession 
for success. 

The Terps heralded recruiting 
class remained intact after former 
coach Erik Bakich left for Michigan, 
top left-hander Jimmy Reed re- 
turns, too. 

"I'm excited about this wonderful 
opportunity to lead the Maryland 
baseball program," Szefc said upon 
his hiring. "We haue a strong core 
group of players already in place at 
Maryland, and I see great things for 
the future of our program." 

The returnees haue the Terps 
poised for a run at their first NCAA 
Tournament appearance since 1971 
with pitching and defense again 
being the team's calling cards.

And that starts at the top of the 
rotation with Reed. The senior was 
drafted in the 21st round of the MLB 
Draft last summer by the New York 
Yankees, but he decided to return 
for his senior season. He started last 
season as the team's closer before 
making a midseason moue to the ro- 
tation where he became the team's 
top starter. 

Last season. Reed posted a 1-3 re- 
cord and 2.70 ERA in 20 games (six 
starts). He struck out 51 batters in 
60 innings while holding batters to a 
.226 auerage. 

At the plate, three of the Terps' top 
four hitters return, led by catcher 
Jack Cleary, whose torrid last month 
of the season propelled to the top of 
the team's stat sheet with a .319 au- 
erage. Third baseman K.J. Hockaday 
and outfielder Jordan Hagel started 
all 56 games last year and posted au- 
erages of .317 and .309, respectiuely. 

The team will also benefit from 
the return of Charlie White, the 
team's opening night starter in cen- 
ter field and leadoff batter, who was 
lost with a broken hand one month 
into the season. 

Joining the Terps' other return- 

ing starters like slugging first base- 
man Tim Kiene is a group of talented 
freshmen with MLB-leuel potential. 
Three of the Terps' incoming fresh- 
men — pitchers Jake Drossner and 
Jared Price and shortstop Jose Cuas 
— were taken in the June draft but 
elected to come to College Park. A 
fourth, catcher Keuin Martir, was on 
the radar of many teams, too. 

All of the newcomers on the field 
will haue to mesh with the newcomer 
in the dugout. Szefc has been coach- 
ing since 1990 and was most recently 
an assistant at Kansas State. His most 
recent head coaching job was when 
he coached Marist from 1996-200Z 
and posted a 212-137-1 record. 

Now, the task in front of him is 
molding the team Bakich built into 
an NCAA Tournament squad. 

"John has been successful in euery 
position he's held during his 22-year 
coaching career," athletic director 
Keuin Anderson said in a July news 
release. "He has prouen himself as 
a successful head coach and a re- 
cruiter and deueloper of top talent. 
I haue no doubt that John will do an 
outstanding job leading our baseball 




In the past three years, Laura Wat- 
ten has led the Terrapins softball team 
to a string of success that was unprec- 
edented in the team's brief history. 

During her seuen years as coach, 
Watten has led the Terps to three ap- 
pearances in the NCAA Regionals and 
the second-most wins in a season (40) 
in program history in 2011. 

But Watten knows there's still more 
for her team to accomplish, and they 
can still go farther in 2013. 

"Ultimately, we'd like to be able to 
get through a regional and get into a 
super regional and be able to compete 
all the way until through the World Se- 
ries," Watten said. "We haue a young 
team this year but the thing about 
this program is I came in here want- 
ing to build it to be a postseason type 
program, one that expected to be in 
the postseason and played like that all 
year long and that's something that 
we continue to deuelop euery year." 

For Watten, one part of her team that 
stands out immediately is its balance. 
Of the 20 players on the roster, nine 
upperclassmen and 11 are freshmen or 
sophomores. There are a number of 
pieces that are going to gain experi- 
ence this season. 

Watten said some of the balance 

Athletics Editor 

is due to the fact that her team lacks 
a standout superstar, one player that 
all the focus will be on in euery game. 
Last season marked the end of historic 
careers for pitcher Kendra Knight, who 
graduated with the fourth-most wins 
and second-most strikeouts in program 
history, and outfielder Vangie Galindo, 
who left as the all-time leader in bat- 
ting auerage, hits and stolen bases. 

Instead, there'll be a mix. The pitch- 
ing staff is led by sophomore Kaitlyn 
Schmeiser and adds freshmen Maddie 
Martin and Samantha Schweickhardt. 
In the field, the Terps show their expe- 
rience with senior Sara Acosta in the 
outfield and junior Candice Beards at 
first base. 

"We're balanced across the board, 
and euerybody on this team is going to 
be able to contribute and be expected 
to contribute," Watten said. "I'm just 
looking for us to be consistent through- 
out the season and learn a lot and 
grow a lot. It's what you haue to do as a 
young team." 

Beards is the Terps' top returning hit- 
ter, posting a .318 auerage and a team- 
high ZU RBI. Catcher Shannon Bustillos 
batted .281 with a team-high seuen 
home runs and 33 RBI, meaning the 
Terps didn't lose much production from 

last year in their lineup. 

It sets up quite the assortment for Wat- 
ten, with the combination of returning 
players and new faces in the program. 
She's proud of the team's chemistry, but 
still isn't sure how it will work out. 

"There haue been years I hauen't 
established and identified captains at 
all and just depended on the team and 
that chemistry," Watten said. "I think 
euery year you haue to feel the pulse 
of your team. With us hauing a young 
team, we're going to haue expectations 
from some of the players that are out 
on that field that are freshmen that are 
going to be filling some big shoes and 
are going to haue some big roles on the 

But one thing is for sure. Watten ex- 
pects her players, no matter their expe- 
rience leuel to perform. The Terps haue 
been to the postseason three straight 
times after a lengthy drought, and now, 
they're looking to aduance further. 

"They stepped into a program that 
has established ourselues, and we're 
on the map now," Watten said. "We are 
a team that has established ourselues 
as hauing a winning tradition. We want 
to continue that and keep that going. 
That's why they came here."

Early on, the up-and-doujns of 
the Terrapins lurestling team were 
easily apparent. 

There luere the wins ouer Purdue 
and Nebraska, two schools from the 
wrestling-rich Big Ten Conference, 
in Nouember and December. 

But then there was the loss at 
Bloomsburg and the home defeat 
to Nauy in January, handing the 
team a 9-9 record as ACC play was 
about to begin. 

"We'ue had some really high highs 
and a couple of lows," coach Ker- 
ry McCoy said. "Ultimately, we're 
going to get better euery week. 
Some faster than others and some 
more consistently than others, but 
they're all getting better and that's 
the goal." 

For McCoy, the win against Ne- 
braska stands out. The Terps trailed 
the Cornhuskers 17-9 entering the fi- 
nal three matches to escape with a 
dramatic uictory. Jimmy Sheptock, 
Christian Boley and Carl Buchholz 
each won their matches to send the 
Terps to an 18-17 uictory. 

But there was also the Z2-19 loss to 
Bloomsburg and 22-18 loss to Nauy. 
McCoy knew those matches would 
be tough, but he still expected his 

Athletics Editor 

wrestlers to ouercome any chal- 
lenges placed in front of them. 

"We had some injured guys and we 
had some backups in, not to make 
excuses, but those are the type of 
things that we haue to be able to 
rise aboue," McCoy said. 

On the cusp of ACC play, McCoy's 
solution for the Terps is simple. If his 
wrestlers want to win the program's 
29th ACC Championship — the most 
of any uniuersity in the conference 
— they will need to ramp up the in- 
tensity and focus, from the top of 
the depth chart to the bottom. 

"Euerybody's just got to work a 
little bit harder," McCoy said. "We're 
working hard, and we just need a 
little bit extra. That's where we're at 
right now." 

The talent is there for the Terps 
to continue their success. Josh 
Asper, Jimmy Sheptock, Christian 
Boley and Geoffrey Alexander are all 
ranked in the top 20 for their weight 
classes. Asper checks in at No. 9 in 
the 174-pound weight class, while 
Sheptock is No. 7 in the 184-pound 
class, as of Jan. 19. 

Asper was an All-American in 2012 
and finished the season with a 28-4 
record. Sheptock went 27-6 in 2012 

and has won his first 27 dual meets. 

While looking for more out of all 
his wrestlers, McCoy has seen re- 
sponses early. He highlighted Shane 
Arechiga, a sophomore from Siluer 
Spring, as someone who's stepped 
up when the Terps haue needed it. 
Normally a wrestler in the 141-pound 
weight class, Arechiga has wrestled 
up in the 149-pound weight class for 
the Terps at times. He won his match 
against Nebraska, which kept the 
Terps within striking distance as the 
Cornhuskers tried to pull away. 

"We haue a lot of new guys in 
the rotation," McCoy said. "The last 
three years we'ue had kind of the 
same guys, the tested guys that 
haue been around for a while, and 
now we'ue got a handful of walk-on 
guys in the lineup. We haue guys that 
moued weight classes and got a dif- 
ferent position than they'ue got in 
the past." 

Despite some early season strug- 
gles and aduersity, McCoy has his 
eyes focused on another ACC Champi- 
onship. He's got the talent. Now he's 
just waiting for it to come through. 

"If euerybody's gluing a little bit 
more euery day," McCoy said, "we'll 
get to where we'll need to be." 






It was clear this year was going 
to be different for Mark Turgeon and 
his Terrapins men's basketball team 
from the opening tip of the season 
at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, 

The Terps pushed defending 
champion Kentucky to the brink, 
falling 7Z-69 in front of a national 
audience. After trailing early, the 
Terps rallied to close the gap late 
before No. 3 Kentucky got its last bit 
of separation. 

It could haue easily been taken as 
a moral uictory for a team that lost 
nine games by double digits in Tur- 
geon's first season and had six new 
players seeing major minutes. 

Athletics Editor 

But for the Terps' coach, it was 
nothing of the sort. 

"We're disappointed in the loss," 
Turgeon told the media afterward. 
"We fully expected to win the game 
coming up here, and we didn't do it." 

After Kentucky, though, the Terps 

They reeled off 12 straight wins in 
all different fashions. There were the 
blowouts ouer LIU Brooklyn, Georgia 
Southern and UMES. There were the 
close battles against George Mason 
and Stony Brook. And with a young 
team, each game added something 
different as the team prepared for 
ACC play to open in early January. 

"There are some things I need to 

work on with the lead to make us 
better that I hauen't added, but I will 
add going forward," Turgeon said 
Dec. 21 after the Stony Brook game. 
"With a young team it is hard to add 
things. It was good because we are 
going to haue a lot of close games, so 
it was good." i 

Often times playing four freshmen 
and a transfer on the court at once, 
the Terps receiued contributions 
from up and down the depth chart. 
Most notable was forward Dez Wells, 
a sophomore transfer from Xauier. 
The Raleigh, N.C., natiue paced the 
Terps to key uictories at Northwest- 
ern and against George Mason scor- 
ing 23 and 29 points, respectiuely. 

"Whateuer my team needs from 
me, that's luhat I'm going to pro- 
uide," Wells said after the George 
Mason game. "I don't want to make 
this about myself because I couldn't 
haue done this without my team. 
They luelcomed me with open arms 
when I first got here and I couldn't 
haue done any of this without those 
guys. " 

And while the Terps' newcomers 
< made a splash, it was a returning 
player that perhaps made the big- 
gest impact. 

Last year, center Alex Len looked 

lost at times with his 7-foot-1 frame. 

There were flashes of brilliance, but 

there were also moments of f rustra- 

I tion. Terps fans had heard about the 

' work he had put in during the offsea- 

son, but there was no telling what 
uersion of Len would suit up for the 
Terps to start the season. 

But the Ukrainian erased any 
doubts of his ability right away. In 
front of that national audience in 
Brooklyn, Len scored 23 points and 
grabbed 12 rebounds. In the process, 
he announced himself as a force in- 
side and a potential lottery pick in 
the 2013 NBA Draft. 

It was a deuelopment in the front 
court supplemented by senior lead- 
ership from forward James Padgett 
and youth from freshmen Shaquille 
Cleare and Charles Mitchell. In the 
backcourt, guard Nick Faust's ma- 
turity continued to increase, while 
Pe'Shon Howard became a key fa- 
cilitator for a talented bunch of scor- 

ers. Through the Terps first 13 games, 
they had six leading scorers. 

On the cusp of league play, there 
was optimism abound for a team 
that hadn't been to the NCAA Tourna- 
ment since 2010. As Turgeon contin- 
ues to ouerhaul the program, things 
just look like they'll be different for 
the Terps. 

"I am excited to go into the league 
because I think we are ready for 
it," Turgeon said after the Terps de- 
feated lUPUl on Jan. 1. "Mentally we 
weren't ready to play today; Satur- 
day we will be ready for it. You haue 
to ask the guys. We won the games; 
we did what we had to do. A lot of 
teams around the country play the 
same type of schedule, and we han- 
dled it well."

At the end of the 2011-2012 season, 
the Terrapins women's basketball 
team was one step from the preci- 
pice of the game. Only one game 
separated the Terps from the Final 
Four, where they hadn't aduanced 
to since winning the 2006 national 

The Terps would fall to Notre 
Dame in the Elite Eight in coach 
Brenda Frese's deepest tournament 
run since 2009, but it set the tone 
for the Terps' 2012-2013 campaign. 
After returning to success last 

Athletics Editor 

season, they would sustain it this 

"For us, the challenge is to con- 
tinue to set that bar euen higher to 
separate ourselues being out there," 
Frese said at the team's media day in 

But as across all walks of life, the 
return to glory is marred by chal- 
lenges, aduersity and difficulties. 

Projected starting point guard 
Brene Moseley tore an ACL in prac- 
tice in October. Backup center Es- 
sence Townsend suffered the same 

injury in the Terps' Nou. 9 exhibition 
game against Goldey-Beacom. And 
starting shooting guard Laurin Mincy 
tore an ACL in a win at Nebraska on 
Nou. 28. 

All of a sudden, the Terps had lost 
two starters and a reserue from their 
depth. It threw a starting lineup into 
flux that seemed so solid when the 
season began and forced Frese andi 
her coaching staff to shuffle differ- 
ent combinations on the floor to 
keep her players fresh. 

By early December, Frese decided 

on her starting lineup. It included 
tujo freshmen — guard Chloe Pau- 
lech and forward Tierney Pfirman 
— plus reigning ACC Player of the 
Year Alyssa Thomas, AII-ACC forward 
Tianna Hawkins and center Alicia 

"I feel like the continuity, the con- 
sistency is there," Frese said after the 
Terps defeated Hartford on Dec. 29. 
"Our rotations, the feel. Obuiously, 
that's not to say in different games 
in terms of matchups and different 
looks, but I like how this group really 
starts the game and how they can 
start that knockout punch early." 

Despite all the changes surround- 
ing the team on the court, the Terps, 
who started the year ranked No. 5 by 
the Associated Press, still enjoyed a 
large amount of success early in the 

They won 10 of their first 13 games 
by an auerage of 39 points. The Terps 
defeated then-No. 21 Nebraska on 
the road in late Nouember. They took 
down player of the year candidate 
Elena Delle Donne and Delaware on 
the road in front of a sell-out crowd 
in late December. When the team 
was hitting on all cylinders, the Terps 
were nearly impossible to stop. 

"When we are in a flow, I don't wor- 
ry about making mistakes or turning 
the ball ouer," Thomas said after the 
Hartford game, which the Terps won 
by 32 points. "We are just going out 
there and hauing fun and playing for 
each other." 

The only times the Terps stumbled 
was when opponents would knock 
them out of one of those flows. In 
their first loss at St. Joseph's on Nou. 
17, the Terps were held without a 
basket in the final seuen minutes of 
play. Then-No. 19 North Carolina held 

the Terps to 23.9 percent shooting in 
the second half of a 60-97 game Jan. 
3. The shots simply wouldn't fall. 

The Terps performed well on the 
national stage, too. Despite falling to 
then-No. 2 Connecticut, 63-48, on na- 
tional teleuision on Dec. 3, the Terps 
held arguably the nation's best team 
to their worst performance of the 

There were indiuidual highlights, 
too. Hawkins scored a career-high 33 
points at Loyola on Nou. 11. Thomas 
recorded the second triple-double 
in program history in a 90-point win 

ouer George Mason on Dec. 8. 

But through euerything, the end 
goal remained the same: a return to 
the Final Four for an attempt at the 
program's second national champi- 

"If you focus on the little things, 
the winning will take care of itself," 
Frese said in October. "What's im- 
portant now when we're in this mo- 
ment, whether its academics, we're 
focused on that moment. Whether 
we're in practice, we're into that 
moment or if we're with our family, 
we're all in and we're spending that

Tujice in the past two years, the 
Terrapins men's lacrosse team ad- 
uanced to the sport's highest stage, 
only to fall short. 

In 2011, it was a second quarter 
surge by Virginia that defeated the 
Terps at M&T Bank Stadium in coach 
John Tillman's first season. 

Last year, Loyola's lockdoujn de- 
fense held the Terps scoreless dur- 
ing the final 50 minutes of play in a 
9-3 loss. 

Nouj, for the third consecutiue 
season, the Terps look to return to 
the NCAA Tournament's final week- 
end in search of their first national 
championship since 1979. 

The road back to Memorial Day 
weekend starts with yet another 
grueling schedule featuring a num- 
ber of the nation's top teams. 

"Once again, our schedule is chal- 
lenging from start to finish," Tillman 
said in a release when the schedule 
was announced in December. "We 
consistently haue one of the na- 
tion's toughest schedules, and this 
season could be our most challeng- 
ing, playing some of the best teams 
' ' 'i-sst players in the nation each 
-ru sueek." 

face typical ACC foes 


Athletics Editor 

Duke, North Carolina and Virginia in 
March and add a rematch against 
Loyola in February to go with re- 
gional riuals UMBC, Nauy and Johns 
Hopkins. Eight foes on the Terps' 
schedule made the NCAA Tourna- 
ment in Z01Z, and the slate finishes 
up in May with a game against reign- 
ing Tewaaraton Trophy winner Pe- 
ter Baum's Colgate Raiders. 

Despite graduating top scorer Joe 
Cummings, the Terps return fiue of 
their top seuen scorers. Senior at- 
tackman Owen Biye is the returning 
leading scorer for the Terps with 40 
points (ZO goals, ZO assists), while 
midfielder John Haus (16 goals, 17 
assists) is a two-time All-American 

The offense is there for the Terps 
and could get stronger, as junior at- 
tackman Mike Chanenchuk came on 
strong for the Terps at the end of 
Z01Z and finished with 18 goals. 

While the offense remains mostly 
steady, there are changes on the de- 
fensiue side of the field for the Terps. 
Defensiue coordinator Keuin 
Warne took the head coaching job 
at Georgetown in August after two 
years in College Park. At the end of 
the month, Tillman hired Keuin Con- 

ry from Fairfield to fill that uoid on 
the coaching staff. Conry's Fairfield 
teams finished in the top 16 in the 
nation in defense each of the past 
three seasons. 

"Keuin is one of the outstand 
ing young coaches in the country 
and has a prouen track record," said 
Tillman of Conry. "But just as impor 
tantly, he has tremendous character 
and embodies the characteristics of 
a Maryland defense — tough, hard 
working and loyal." 

The year Z013 also marks the return 
to College Park of former long pole 
Brian Farrell, who helped the Terps 
to their Z011 national championship 
game appearance against Virginia. 
He was a two-time Tewaaraton Tro- 
phy nominee as the nation's best la 
crosse player. 

It's another piece to the puzzle 
of the Terps trying to break a long 
championship drought. Seuen times 
since the 1979 season the Terps haue 
fallen in the national championship. 
But with much of the talent from last 
season's team returning and another 
year for the younger Terps to gain 
experience, this year could be differ

The Terrapins women's lacrosse 
team has turned the page. 

After falling to Northwestern in 
the NCAA Tournament semifinals 
last May when the Wildcats scored 
fiue of the game's last six goals, the 
Terps haue moued on to focus on 
what this season brings. 
It is, after all, a new season. 

"Losing the last game of the sea- 
son is always hard for any team," 
coach Cathy Reese said. "Z013 is a 
different year, though, and a differ- 
ent season and we are a different 
team. Our players are motiuated 
and inspired to be the best they can 
be and are working hard to get bet- 
ter euery day." 

For the Terps, it all starts — and 
usually ends with a goal — with 
midfielder Katie Schwarzmann. The 
Z012 Tewaaraton Trophy winner as 
college lacrosse's most successful 
player, the senior scored 7Z goals 
(fifth most in Terps history) last sea- 
son in addition to dishing ZZ assists. 

With second-leading scorer Karri 
Ellen Johnson graduating, euen 
more eyes will be on Schwarzmann, 
if they weren't already. 

"Katie Schwarzmann is an amaz- 
r.g player and huge for us on both 

Athletics Editor 
ends of the field and of course in our 
transition game in between," Reese 
said. "She is a two-year captain, and 
the team looks to her for leadership 
both on and off the field." 

Johnson, though, is the top-fiue 
goal scorer from last season. Attack- 
er Alex Aust (44 goals), midfielder 
Brooke Griffin (UO goals) and mid- 
fielder Kelly McPartland (39 goals) 
will all take to the field for the Terps, 
who last won the national champi- 
onship in ZOIC. 

Last season, the Terps auerage 
14.69 goals per game while allowing 
their opponents to score 8.00 per 

"We do return a core group this 
season on the offensiue end, which 
will be helpful as we work to incor- 
porate our new players into our of- 
fense," Reese said. "We haue strong 
leadership this season on the offen- 
siue end from Katie Schwarzmann 
and Alex Aust, so we will look to 
them to step up and lead the way." 
Reese and the Terps will integrate 
Inside Lacrosse's third-ranked re- 
cruiting class to the roster this sea- 
son, including No. 1 recruit Taylor 
Cummings, a local product from Elli- 
cott City, midfielder Bryn Boucher 

from Hingham, Mass., and attacker 
Halle Majorana from Manhasset, N.Y. 
In all, eight new freshmen join the 
roster in Z013, allowing Reese to con- 
tinue to build the roster. 

We haue a great group of new 
players this season that will be in- 
uolued right away," Reese said. "We 
had quite a few freshmen starting 
and playing for us last season and 
now with a year under their belt. We 
will look to them to lead the way for 
this year's freshmen class. So far this 
fall and spring we haue seen great 
things from our newcomers, and 
they are fitting right into our system 
of play. We are looking forward to in- 
corporating them further as the sea- 
son continues." 

Now, the focus for the Terps is 
on returning to their customary top 
spot in the nation at the end of the 
season. After winning seuen consec- 
utiue championships from 1999-Z001, 
the Terps haue won just one since 
then. The goal is to get back. 

"I want us to get better each week 
— euery practice," Reese said. "Byi 
playing the top teams in the nation 
we will push ourselues to grow to- 
gether as a team and work to be the 
best we can be in Z013."
